Intro Post: The Bread of Politics vs. the Bread of Life
Middle age makes me mushy. Not just in my waistline, but also in my heart. And not heart, as in heart muscle, but heart as in my emotion...
TAINTS THE BREAD WE SHARE
In the spirit of neighborly discussion, I've created this blog to examine how, as Christians, our focus on politics can eclipse our focus on the Gospel. By turning my gaze from the American political scene to the quieter, but more powerful teachings of Jesus, I am finding a place of renewed peace. I invite you to join me in this kitchen space where we can test an ancient bread recipe--one that omits the yeast of political doctrines. Maybe, together, we can return to using the original dough starter, the leaven that permeates the entire batch and nourishes our hearts and souls and communities.
"And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body." 1 Corinthians 10:17
