The sound of shevarim symbolizes the broken cries of our hearts. It calls us to open our eyes to the brokenness of the world, and to do something about it.
This blog is called Shevarim, because with broken cries I mourn the spiritual condition of people of faith.
Jesus taught, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27).
In the name of Jesus, however, Christians butt heads
with one another, and with those of other faiths and of no faith. We
stage rallies, display challenging messages on our T-shirts and bumper
stickers, and forward emails declaring that we’re not ashamed of the
gospel. But we seldom discuss issues. We seldom listen to those with opposing viewpoints. And we seldom do the good that we are called to do.
Instead of serving as salt and light in bitter and dark places, we separate ourselves from a world that needs love. Is it any wonder that the number of Christians in America dropped 12% in the last two decades?
I write Kathryn Frazier’s Shevarim, because I have hope. I will not shut my eyes to the darkness. I will do something about it.
Whatever your beliefs, I invite you to comment regularly on Shevarim.com. Let’s get the discussion going.
