Description

An election season lament written for those befuddled by Evangelical believers who celebrate someone so opposite of Jesus.

Israel wanted a king, they got Saul, and it cost them dearly.

No matter what happens November 8th, a lot of people who have made Jesus the point of their lives have exuberantly championed a man who looks nothing like the carpenter who went into the desert and turned down all the kingdoms of the world, who showed so much love and kindness to women, who rejected ego and comfort, who told people to sacrifice self for the stranger and the enemy. You can keep your power games and nation building and a man who promises you the world. I think I'll put my hope somewhere else.

All profits go to The Window. A soup kitchen and so much more in Goshen, IN that does a lot of selfless loving. They could use some help right now.
