We’ve been mulling over this topic for a while, and it seems especially timely right now.
We’re talking about a comprehensive ethic of life.
We’re asking how to be comprehensively, collectively, and compassionately Kingdom-minded from womb to tomb, because all humans were made in the Image of God, and ALL people are loved deeply and pursued by the creator of all things.
So: How do we care for the unborn and the refugee? The hungry child and the criminal? The uninsured and the homeless? The one who doesn’t look like me and the one who doesn’t believe like me?
How do we live an upside-down kingdom life that supports life in all facets of our very messy world?
We know this can be a loaded topic with a lot of loaded keywords that bring a lot of feelings, and as we discuss what can be very sensitive topics, we just want to be an example of friends gathering around the table to talk about life through a Kingdom lens.
This isn’t a conversation about politics, or about us vs. them, but about God’s kingdom.
As always, these honest conversations are unscripted and we come to the table with a lot of prayer that through our own brokenness, we will somehow help you start the conversation in your own contexts. We ask for your grace and for ears to hear our heart, and what we believe to be God’s heart, as we dive into this topic in this episode.
In this episode, we ask:
We’re humbled to wade through these murky waters with you, and we hope and pray that our conversation will be life-giving as you continue to work through these thoughts.
If you want a space to process in, we’re loving our new private Facebook group. If you want to join us, just search Upside Down Tribe, and one of us will let you in!
Grace and peace from the muddy Midwest,
