Political Change

Change is slower in politics than most everywhere else, and it’s evident more in terms of how we do things, at this point, than WHAT we do … but it’s happening, one mind at a time. It’s reflected in Jimmy Carter, who quit the Southern Baptist Convention due to their continuing gender bias, and that is exactly how Paradigm Shift looks; people find they can no longer reconcile their higher values with the activity of those groups they’ve traditionally embraced — in Carters case, a life-long alliance.

In the spiritual community, we have a saying that works perfectly for where we are and what we need to do — keep on keeping on. One foot in front of the other, holding the vision of a world welcoming the changes that will recreate this nation in liberty and equality, taking advantage of activist op’s where we find them and urging our representation to support the legislation that will bring the nation back to some semblance of sanity. Change, one mind at a time.
