She’s Occupy,he’s Tea Party; she’s white, he’s black; she’s Portland, he’s Richmond. Nathan Clarke introduces us to Pam Hogeweide and Emmett Bailey, and asks
How can people who share the same faith embrace such different political views?
How can these two views be reconciled? Well, not by man’s work, that’s for sure. Rather, it’s that Christ has become our Reconciliation. He claims our lives in our particulars, including our politics. Our politics fail, unintentionally harm; we ourselves fall short. Christ’s reconciliation means that we can engage the world, make mistakes, even be on opposite sides. Reconciliation means that the other side is not my enemy, but is someone loved by my Savior.
My guess about what they would do? Sit down and sing songs of salvation.
