Got a link to this article in the NY Times on younger evangelicals and politics from Slate.com’s Today’s Papers for this morning. The last line of the NYT article is a quote from a 32 year-old woman who is a member of one of the churches profiled, called “The Journey”: “As much as our faith informs our political views, we aren’t united in one way of thinking. What unites us at the Journey is the power of Jesus Christ.”
When more churches are united by their journey with Jesus than by uniform political ideologies, we will be moving in the right direction. What is needed is a common commitment to discover together the Way of Jesus, which calls to account beliefs and practices of both the political left and right.
