Blogger ate it.
And before I was able to reconstruct my masterful essay of the Peaceable Kingdom and looking within ourselves for those places that keep this vision from being manifested I turned on the television and found myself staring at one of those dark places.
There is a rage that swells up within me at times and spills out in very, VERY colorful language. Its is a rage that is largely confined to a certain politician and his various ideological hangers-on, these days - although it has been known to extend to dangerously stupid people at large.
I know that I am called to see the Christ in my fellow humans.
All of 'em.
That is the truly scary part of the image of the Peaceable Kingdom.
It's not just a pretty picture on a card or a banner.
It's a challenge.
