A Cross-shaped Community
We must see on the cross our call to action and our responsibility. We must see on the cross the people who are suffering today, those with whom Christ identifies with today. Can you see who is there today?
I see the migrant children who are separated from their families and I see LGBTQ+ persons who have been marginalized by the church and I see children who are starving to death in Yemen because of war and I see the poor who cannot afford to go and see a doctor, and I see those who are discriminated against because of their race or their gender or their religion and can you see who is on the cross with Christ today?
Seeing leads to feeling leads to action. We are called to see Jesus on the cross and to see like Jesus from the cross, to see a world where there is no more war and no more oppression and where everyone has what they need to thrive and to do something about it, to be foolish enough to think we can make a difference.
