Analyzing ourselves to death

Everyone seems to have an opinion about what has happened, and is still happening, in Ferguson. There seems to be an element of truth in every analysis, even though the conclusions conflict. There’s really not much those of us at a distance can do about Ferguson; and I’m afraid that much that is being counselled will not produce the desired result.

It remains then, for we who call ourselves Christians, to look at things closer to home: in our homes, our congregations, our communities. Are we applying the healing balm of Christian charity to the sore spots around us? To learn to understand is good; to learn to forgive is infinitely better.

I'd love to hear what you think about this. Please leave a comment.
