It's EASY for me to talk about suffering and injustice. Truly. I'm a hypocrite - comfortable, employed, empowered... and I'm scared to death of giving it all up. I am. I whine (like Kierkegaard) that Christians twist the Gospel into their own comfortable making - downplaying the story of the Rich Young Ruler, among others. Well so do I. And so did Kierkegaard, for that matter. He was independently wealthy before he ever began writing. Being a self-aware sinner probably isn't any better than being an ignorant one. In fact, it's probably worse.
I could blog day after day about things I have no personal connection to. Instead, here's a testimony. In it, you'll find convicting things about American imperialism. You'll also find a bit or two about Christian families who have tried to help through adoption. Both of these are realities. Both of these are our realities. I've chopped bits and pieces - I don't want to steal from this website's (or this writer's) much deserved credit. I hope you'll click through to read the whole thing.
