[A response to a Christian response to KONY 2012]
As Christians, this pursuit is not one we should discourage or even condescend.
It is a right response to cried as Jacob cried for the death of his brother.
It is also right to cry as Jacob will cry for the defeat (or even death) of his brother’s murderer: the tears of someone who will feel vindicated.
These are appropriate responses regardless of whether or not you have been made a new person in Christ; regardless of whether or not you have received this sure hope we have in Christ that he will return as the enduring judge.
It is right for us to feel this sense of hope.
It is right for us to feel that the fulfilment of these will save the world – because they do [I will unpack this soon].
It also matters that we express these emotions as creatively and as passionately as we are able. Our creativity allows us to express things that matter; our imagination allows us to see the world as it should be.

I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”
I’ve had quite a few blogs lined up but hadn’t found the time nor the drive to blog them. But before I resume my regular blogging schedule, I would like to share some thoughts that I’ve had in light of the National Training Event (NTE) Mission I was partnered up with about a week back.
