New American Resistance – 7 August

 

It was Barack Obama’s birthday on 4 August!  To celebrate, I have a couple clips here to remind us of what a classy, intelligent leader he was.  They also bring some humor too.  However, there’s also important news we need to try and process so we can’t get lost in nostalgia.  Let’s get to it!  As usual, this series aims to a) help us stay informed on the events unfolding in America and b) urge readers to add their voice to the chorus calling out for justice.  We must be aware.  We must be vocal.  We must be active.  We must be loving.  This is how we will triumph and how we will transform our lives, our nation, and our world.

New American Resistance – 26 June

I’m returning to form this week, after last week’s more personal and theological reflection on the Kingdom of God and how it affects my personal politics.  As always, it seems there’s a lot to cover.  Let’s see…ah, the GOP’s still trying to rob many of the fundamental human right of health care in the name of profit and power.  That being said, let’s get to it shall we?  This series aims to a) help us stay informed on the events unfolding in America and b) urge readers to add their voice to the chorus calling out for justice.  We must be aware.  We must be vocal.  We must be active.  We must be loving.  This is how we will triumph and how we will transform our lives, our nation, and our world.

New American Resistance – 20 February

I am ANGRY this week.  My righteous fire has cooled a bit since Friday but I’m still angry.  This last week has seen an egregious attack on our health care system which could leave many without life saving coverage AND the most direct and reprehensible attack against the environment I’ve ever seen in my lifetime.  But I’m channeling my righteous anger into something productive.  I ask you to do the same.  All of this has yet to be voted on.  All of this can be stopped if we raise our voices, united.  Without further ado, this weekly series aims to a) help us stay informed on the events unfolding in America and b) urge readers to add their voice to the chorus calling out for justice.  Continue reading
