Class Warfare in Church

Class Warfare in Church

One of the comments since the weekend’s ‘miracle’ election result is how Labor overplayed their hand and turned off voters by appealing to ‘class warfare’. ie. get the media machine churning, pit one group against the other, create a straw man and hope the swing goes in your direction. I’m no political analyst, but I have been around Church ministry long enough that I couldn’t help but think, ‘Hmmm, that sounds awfully familiar - Why is that?’ I think we could have a lot to learn from this as a Church if we’re willing to listen!

Responding to the Creative Burst

Inspiration comes at the most random times. Sometimes it falls while I'm driving home drumming on the dashboard of the car. Other times in the shower while my brain is turned off soaking my shoulders in the heat, or over a glass of wine sitting at the piano... It's at disarmed moments like these, when my soul is open, that a little bell in my head sounds- "bing" - and a revelation appears.
