ONE campaign: bread for the world

Sunday, 29 April 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

This campaign is super important. The church has failed to respond to the dying, except when the priest is called to give the dying last rites or when the pastor is hired to “perform” a wedding. Still, though, poverty continues to grow. Why? Why has the church [both Protestant and Catholic] spent so much energy on doctrine instead of relationships? For me, theology and Christianity both work when they are understood in light of relationships and relationality. Outside of that and inside the frameworks of doctrinal theology and narrow minded bullshit, it does NOT work. So, if you’re calling yourself Christian these days, then you’re probably following the stories of Jesus, right? And you’re probably seeing the parallel of Jesus’ anarchy, right? Or, are you one of those folks who are focusing on liturgy and doctrine and the “mysteries of the faith”? Well, what do those things have to do w/ relationship? Furthermore, how can those things help end poverty?
