It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. It doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing…in fact, I’ve been slaving away at a 20+ page thesis, my final assignment in my seminary coursework, and prior to graduation in May. Four years later, I’ve finally reached the end!
Anyway, yesterday’s events have blown me away….as an athlete, for something to happen at the Boston Marathon, it feels like a direct attack on my own soul. To be blunt, I just don’t have any words right now…….
And maybe, that’s a good thing. My Facebook news feed and email have been blowing up with all sorts of responses to the events in Boston. Considering my line of work, a lot of it is theological, religious, and pastoral. Some of it is good, some of it I’m neutral on, and some of it just down right disgusts me.
I wonder, if at this time, actions don’t speak louder than words. As church leaders, and maybe as people of faith in general, we call people to all sorts of action, but don’t actually do anything ourselves. We just talk….and our inaction is deafening, especially in light of such actions like the Westboro Baptists have planned.
In my world, actions always speak louder than words. I’m tired of words. So I’ll stop now….I’m off to love, live, work, play….you name it, in ways that place faith in and witness to God’s hope and redemption in such a crazy world as this, where stuff like this happens all over the world.
There’s no time for talk. I hope you’ll join me.
