Since the beginning of the Experiment of Democracy in this country, elections and the duty to vote have been discussed, written about, disagreed about, and bandied back and forth. The church, and those within it, have not avoided opinion and have used their positions to influence others.

ENCOUNTER THE STORY

Theological Reflection – the poetry of Malcolm Guite

Theological Reflection – the poetry of Malcolm Guite

Like the other arts, poetry has the capacity to, in Lewis’ own phrase, “steal past those watchful dragons” of our hardened hearts in such a way that we are able to encounter God afresh. That’s what I experienced among my colleagues last week, when in our biweekly Theological Reflection time we spent an hour simply reading some of Guite’s poems and reflecting on them.

It may ease our minds a little if we think back to even bleaker times and discover the resilience of the people of God, the Church, when faced with seemingly unsurmountable odds against survival.

These trends may exacerbate the already significant education and opportunity gap between wealthy and moderate-to-low-income families, a gap which disproportionately impacts people of color.

We applaud and stand with all who are raising their voices in protest against this latest injustice, and the entrenched, systemic racism in our society that it reflects. We most especially applaud all those on our streets and in our communities who are refusing to join individuals – often not from our own communities – who would cause the safety of our people, neighborhoods and institutions to be torn asunder by reckless violence.
