Advent One – Wednesday

1 Corinthians 1:3-9.

I have dithered and fussed and wondered and eventually decided to write what is on my heart today. I’ve done my best to stay away from partisan politics on the blog and on Facebook during the election period but the refusal of the Republicans, for no other logical reason than to be obstructionist, to ratify the UN Disability Treaty is simply unconscionable. There can be no excuse for it.

In this season when we are asked to Hope, I find myself verging on despair, as people in government and the media and the conservative Christian church seem to forget Jesus’ instructions to care for the broken and disabled, both mentally and physically, in our society.

Be sure and read this blog from Jan Edmiston, and join me in prayers for our broken, selfish world.

Rachel Maddow did a good segment on it yesterday, but it hasn’t been posted on You Tube yet, so I can’t link to it for you, but be sure to look for it.

How long, Lord?
