Drama— religious, political, personal — is compelling. It captivates. It sells. It grabs our eyes and our minds. Too often, it worms its way into our hearts as well.
Words are easy to spin in such a way as to create ever increasing levels of drama.
We release adrenaline reading the provocative headline. We are drawn into clicking the link, or reading the rest of the post, the article, the story. Our fears are confirmed. “They” are dishonest, sexist, racist, and dangerous. “They” are not to be trusted. “They” are going to hurt us.
“bears all things,
trusts all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.”
(1 Corinthinans, 13:7 DFV)
When we feed ourselves with a steady diet of drama, from the buffet of media spread before us, the expression of love becomes a revolutionary act.
Read “Diner Buys Anti-Gay Family’s Dinner As Surprise Act Of Love” on Huffington Post.
What might your revolutionary act be?
