A Kairos Moment

A Kairos Moment

The highlight of the morning was the speech by Jim Wallis. He spoke of

our time as a Kairos Moment, a moment when time stands still, something

is coming together, a moment when something is happening.

He mentioned that many people seeking his autography for his book God's

Politics included young kids. He said he could not understand it. One

morning he asked an 11 yr. Old why he was reading the book and the kid

said, "I think we are going to have to change the world.

How did Jesus become pro rich and pro war he asked. "There is a moral

edge to what we do," he said. He quoted Merton as says that "at the root

of all war is fear." He went on to describe how much of our political

problems are driven by fear.

He sure makes one think. I appreciated his candor and his sense that God

is alive and working in our world.
