Jesus for President!!!

So last night Natalie, Tracy, Graham, Reagan, Abby, Chelsea, and myself took off to Raleigh to catch the local leg of the Jesus for President tour. Shane Claiborne, Chris Hall, and a few friends are ending up a speaking engagement that was, shall I say, unlike anything I have ever witnessed. First off, I loved it. But I love the strange, weird, and uncomfortable things in life. And I am not easily distracted from what I am trying to investigate or look deeply into. That being said, I could tell by the looks on the face of the people I was with that this was going to be an evening not soon forgotten. There are no words to explain what we witnessed. None. If you want to see it you will have to get the DVD later when it is released. But the teaching was great. If you are anti war and government, then this was the place to be. If you believe in the “third way”, the way of Jesus, then this was the place to be. If you wanted to see a Rob Zombie look alike beating the heck out of drums made out of trash cans, then this was the place to be. If you wanted to see a flower childish woman openly breast feeding her child in a church service, then this was the place to be.  If you wanted to see people that were so uncomfortable because they wanted to laugh, which they should have laughed (laughter can be joyus), but were scarred to, then this was the place to be. If you wanted to engage in a style of worship music that has no name and was being led by the yodeling chanting champion of 2008, then this was the place to be. If you wanted to gather with others who are fed up with this “great country” hijacking the most beautiful revolution ever put into motion and using it for agendas that are powered by greed, the love of killing, and increasing what they believe is true power then this was the place to be.

Long live the slaughtered lamb!
