Challenges today - inequality/impatience... Let's Change the rhetoric


Let's Change the Rhetoric!!

The rhetoric is too high ... too nasty. Christians, whatever your political persuasion, Christians need prayer at this time.

How can we, as Christians, assist to fix this increasing hostility? Or do you think the expressed differences will pressure our leaders to act in some way?

From a different perspective. Conflicts in Caperston mimic some challenges found throughout the world today. The stratification of haves and have-nots is increasing, particularly in America. The rich get richer and the poor ... ???

The movement in Caperston, led by Zester, to label the mountain people as less than equals, led to the violence in their society? What do you think we

can learn from Caperston's trials and tribulations?

Did not inequality lead to the massacre on the highway?(http://christianteensactivities.org/newstoryApril2014.php)

Did not impatience lead to the martyrdom of Dustin? (http://christianteensactivities.org/NewstoryMay2014.php)

A recent comment from Alex: "Wouldn't it be nice to just forget the past and move on with a future of hope. However, we live in a world too separated by people with big differences of opinions. We can agree to differ but there is too much anger from extreme people on the 'left' and the 'right'.

See Alex's full reply under "user comments" found below on right. Your comment, which is most welcome, can also be recorded under "leave a comment", also below right. 


To “Massage School Hoboken” - another thing that clears the soul and, thus, enhances self - understanding is the ability to listen and prayer. We can learn much from our young people about prayer. Play the below You Tube video... how special it is.

Faith in those “ready to fight” is a frightening thing. There is too much violence in both of our worlds. I am interested in seeing how the people of Caperston will cope with the massacre.

Yes, being "ready to fight" is a frightening thing. It is the response of the mountain youth before they came to understand that there is another way across the broken highway on which the massacre of their friends occured. Valley youth, inspired by Mattpaul, see the circumstances differently. At the end of Huchfee's letter of April 9th he writes:
“One of our Valley Youth responded to what we heard by stating: "We believe in hope ... the past is gone. All there is ... is future". He is one of our quieter youth by the name of Lukus. He could not have stated our beliefs better.”
Please read the letters of April 7th and April 9th from Huchfee found at http://christianteensactivities.org/newstoryApril.php
What do you think about Lukas’ “All there is … is future” remark?

I have not written for a while. Wouldn't it be nice to just forget the past and move on with a future of hope. However, we live in a world too separated by people with big differences of opinions. We can agree to differ but there is too much anger from extreme people on the "left" and the "right". I guess our friends in Caperston have no idea what the "left" and the "right" mean. Huchfee and Michaeling- you are better off not knowing. IN America we need leaders who can bring us together, not continue to separate us so that we can look to the future with hope.I like the message, "We believe in hope ... the past is gone. All there is ... is future". Can we find a way to focus and forget the anger of the past? I hope so. :-?

Alex: we do have the same hope ... we need to put the anger and rhetoric behind us. In particular the rhetoric is way too intense ... too nasty. We Christians, whatever our political persuasion and whatever our denomination ... Catholic, mainline protestant, Baptist, Pentecostal... we need to be the peacemakers amongst the brutalness of the diatribe which dominates the, in particular Twitter discourse at this time.

I fear for the future of our world. We need to speak up. Christ calls us in Matthew chapter 25 to reach out to the sick, the needy and those imprisoned unjustly. This is NOT a liberal issue. It is a Christian issue. Will you pray for wisdom and strength to stop this prejudice? Will you speak out? We look forward to your opinions and it is all right to disagree with me.

Just please ... no name calling.

I just can't consider all the things we concern ourselves with in our lives makes a difference.
On a regular basis spent thinking about the various things that
we experience just about every moment is undoubtedly necessary, as
no other person will encounter life for us. Personally I think that
people should be more mentally stable. Knowledge is marvelous, yet a lot of that which you think about is so abstract.
Having a cup of tea is a zen process that brings one back to the present moment
in time. We need to be more in the here and now, without being overwhelmed by life and the dilemmas we experience every
day. http://ambi.g.uit.Yg.m.vw@Go.o.gle.email.2.%5Cn1@n.j.bm.vgtsi.o.ekl.a.

Christians Speak Out. When will the nastiness in Washington Stop? When will someone bring us together and stop splitting us apart with partisan politics? Thanksgiving is one week away and Christmas, the holiday of peace, goodwill and the Christ child's birth, is a month away.

As a youth worker since the 1970's I have always focused on my young people and let Washington politics do their thing. It has been successful for our youth. Now I worry about their future.

I am not sure what to do.

Thank you Ralph. We, at Christianyouthgroup.org, have been wondering the same. The atmosphere is most devisive and no one is making an effort to gather people together.
I have friends on both sides of the political spectrum and I advise - let's talk about all the things we agree upon and leave the disagreements to those who, for whatever reason, must focus on them.

It is sad but some well known Christians are taking the side of those who state join us or oppose us. It is very sad and the Christian faith, we believe, is in crisis because of this.

Thanksgiving was a time to celebrate togetherness and Christmas is a time to proclaim hope. Both are based upon the love God has for each of us.

So let's talk about the hope each Christian has in God, who loves us.

Your thoughts are most welcome.:)

Upon reflection, I thought this article was timely and relevant.
Thank you very much for penning this article; if More authors wrote time-worthy and intelligent musings, I
think everybody'd all be in a better situation. I, personally, know
should focus more on fitness and diet and escape from being always in front of the computer or I-Phone screen.
Go outside!! (and not being glued to the cell
phone all the while, either) and living life in full appreciation of the randomness and patterns of
nature, helps people feel sane and feeling joyous.

Trying to catch up. Still trying to find hope? Can a tragedy like the shooting in Florida bring hope as people agree to take action?

I am 24 and trying to find a career job. When I do, I will feel hope.

My Christian faith teels me that, although love is "the greatest" there is also faith and hope, provided by God. Let's all hope for the best this year. (I Corinthians 13)

Alex ... I am sorry that I have not responded sooner. I was, in part, hoping to receive a meaningful response to you from someone other than myself.

Yes, there have been some distressing moments. I guess if you think economically things have been good at least in America. Unemployment is down and that alone gives hope to many people.

However, the separation in society is distressing. Even among we Christians. Instead of bring us together our leaders, even unfortunately, our Christian leaders seem to be separating us. The world is not as simple as some would have us believe.

Christ told us to give to Caesar that which is Caesar's and give to God that which is God's. I believe this means that we live in a political world and must give what it is due. In this country what is due is our loving opinions when we both agree and when we disagree.

In this website we have a lot of information on the Gun Control issue which is tearing this country apart and which our politicians are reluctant to deal with. I hope you will take a look. We try to be honest and give all sides as best as we can. Your thoughts are always appreciated.http://christianteensactivities.org/GunControl.php
