It is always exasperating to me to sit down to write a post on something that is burning in my soul and then I mistakenly read my mail before pulling up WORD. Today is one of those days and I find that one of my friends has written MY article--and is often the case, written better than I can write it. Such is the case. My dear Sistah in Christ, Elizabeth Kaeton got there ahead of me today .
This is also happening here in the US. It isn't happening, necessarily in the church, but it is happening among the people who are saying that corporations "aren't people." They are saying that it is time to take back the elective process in American politics. It is time for the people of our nation to take back what was given away by those who chose to be passive and irresponsible about our elective process.
I generally wax a bit philosophical about the Church. I do believe that the Barque of Peter will right itself. I am not so certain of the politics. The mare's nest that has developed in Congress is not going to be easily alleviated. But the movement has begun.
