I started this blog to post, among other things, political stuff to free up my facebook space. I have tried, and failed, to shake politics but it's in my blood now. As a result, it's easy to get discouraged at the recent events and rant incoherelty. Phil J. at my church felt similarly, but knew a better way. So we did someting not done in the recent history of our small church: we held a prayer meeting.
Silence. Long prayers in that silence, together with others praying silently for each other, the church leaders, and for our national leaders.
The thing about asking God for solutions is being willing to be part of the solution. Wether in politics, or life in general there is still work to be done. But, the focus must be right. Focus on the Kingdom of God, and the little things with which he entrusts us(including local politics, which more people should pay attention to). Jesus taught that if we are faithfull with a little, we will then be entrusted with more.
However, He is more than capable of handling those bigger things untill then.
