Let this Lenten Season begin in #WednesdayAshes.
In a nation where far too many “Christians” hide beneath the umbrella of cover-churches and look-the-other-way-religious-leaders who give space for greed, racial bigotry, manufactured cultural divisions and self-centered nationalism, let’s offer a counter narrative. Let’s proclaim messages of transformation and renewal?
In this season let’s encourage one another to think about the issue of wealth and poverty in new ways? The book by Maricio Miller, The Alternative is a place to begin. #WednesdayAshes is a way to share new understandings. If you are in or around central Indiana, folks will be gathering to learn more on February 24th Register here.
What better time to “do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8).
We might be clear that the time for repentance and renewal in this nation so full of words designed to divide and demean is at hand. Personally, I am sending my congressional representatives the passage from Isaiah 10:1-2 under the #WednesdayAshes.
10:1 Woe to those who make unjust laws,
to those who issue oppressive decrees,
2 to deprive the poor of their rights
and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,
making widows their prey
and robbing the fatherless.
