As I scroll through my Twitter feed, turn on the TV, or talk to people, I'm saddened to see ever more evidence that truth and beauty are absent from the American political discourse. What we're witnessing today is the fruit of a body politic which has wandered from its foundation—we are a people in desperate need of healing.
However, as followers of Jesus, the gospel we know lays claim to the political realm and upends our human understanding of governance and power. Liberatus is a growing voice committed to speaking a radically different message into the self-exalting echo chamber of American politics. Each week through the weekly journal, followers of this gospel from within the halls of government cast a creative vision for healing in politics through a deeper understanding of what it truly means to be free. As a member of Liberatus' board, I see first-hand the drive and passion underlining this mission. I see the potential for a paradigm shift. I am hopeful—on the basis of that gospel—that true healing is coming.
Liberatus is the mustard seed of this vision. Won't you join and be a part of this collective voice of healing with me? Here are three specific ways you can take action:
- Apply to become a writer of the journal
- Subscribe to the journal and share this message with others
- Give to support this creative pursuit of bringing truth and beauty to American politics
Together, for true freedom.
