The Resistance Continues…

The election of Donald Trump, a fascist demagogue, to the most powerful office in the world, is just one more of those dark moments in history when Christians have to remind ourselves that the kingdom we seek is not of this world, and that we are called to an ongong subversive mission of proclaiming God’s rule over humankind. The destruction of Jerusalem and its temple in 70CE was a much worse calamity for people of faith, Jewish and Christ, but we got through by staying on task and working undercover to bring something better than the evil empire to birth. The Gospel reading for this coming Sunday addresses that ancient crisis, and still speaks to us 2000 years later.
