Activism and Spirituality ... In light of the inauguration, protests and the Women's March, what is ours to do? How are we to be?
Some people who describe themselves as spiritual shy away from being an activist because they align being spiritual with being a pacifist. Jesus was most definitely spiritual and yet he was far from being a pacifist. He spoke his word. He took a stand for people he felt had been marginalized. He took time alone to commune with God ... and he use affirmative prayer boldly in the company of thousands. Is He not a great example? He is quoted as having said, "These things and greater shall you do." Was He not calling us to do as He did as well as do as He said? This evening, we will delve into how it is to be a "spiritual activist."
