When our parents told us that politics and religion weren’t topics for polite conversation they weren’t thinking like the living Jesus.
Jesus was a politician who fought the corporate, greed-driven takeover of his God-centric country. He debated publically the educated religious and wealthy elite of his country on philosophy and faith; pointing out what is God-thought and what is temporal blunder, greed, lust or ambition.
Easter is a good time to get right with actual Jesus. The Jesus you meet in my classroom on Tuesday nights is the Jesus who lived 2000 years ago and we explore modern proclamation from the living Jesuses who still speak like him today.
