"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4 

 

Politics and Humility

Feb 9, 2020

Philippians 2:1-16; John 17:14-21; Romans 12:1-3, 9-21 

Philosopher Frederich Neitzche hated humility. He believed that humility was a Christian virtue and had no place in an enlightened world. Neitzche would love the current political situation in America. However, we are not after a world that looks more like Nietzsche's philosophical ideal, rather we are after a world in which the Kingdom of Heaven is on display in all corners of our culture through the hands, feet, language, and virtues of everyday Christians. How humble are you in your political conversations? Do people get a picture of Christ’s love after they encounter you on social media, or in person? How can we model love for our “cultural other” if we can’t listen, empathize, and show humility toward them? Join us for a much-needed conversation before we go into this election year about the self-emptying humility of Christ and hope we have for Common Ground to live into that love in the year ahead.
