"There's a lot of competition for the title of "lord," and most of the candidates will enrich themselves at your expense."

Thanks to a couple folks who have sent me this Trinity Sunday reflection using "Please" to think about lordship and politics. Excerpt: "[Christians] participate in national affairs as paroikoi, pilgrims who live in and among the nations, but whose baptism calls us to seek and serve Christ in others, and to serve Christ only. Putting one of the rulers of the nations in the same category as Jesus and allegiance to one nation's agenda in the same category as our citizenship in God's kingdom indicate a fundamental category confusion, a tragic mistake."
