I suspect I’m like you because I cannot get the massacre in Uvalde out of my mind. And as I have been thinking, grieving, getting angry and praying about it, I have also listened to the national conversation that involves everything from explaining to blaming to condemning to justifying. Quite frankly, the only conclusion I can reach is that we have lost our minds because we cannot do what should be the easiest thing in the world to do – agree on what matters most. Of course, there are many considerations that need to be taken into account because it is a very complex matter. But all Christians – regardless of theological perspective – should agree on our priority because Jesus already has made that priority abundantly clear. It’s the children. “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these (Matthew 19:14 NIV).” So at a time when all of us are trying to figure out what we do to end the pandemic of gun violence, there is one thing we can do right now. We can come together in one voice and keep talking to our friends, neighbors, co-worker and political leaders until protecting our children becomes the starting point this nation embraces for ending this abomination.
