I was thinking this morning, (April Fools’ Day) how wonderful this day would be if Donald Trump held a press conference and said two words: “April Fools’!”
Wow, Donald. You really got us. You got us good! We actually thought you were going to desire and win the office of President. You so funny.
But alas the day has passed and I guess he’s really serious.
I was also hoping that those fearful, angry evangelicals would also join the chorus and say, “April Fools’!”
But they didn’t either. This is really happening. The emperor has no clothes. Fear and anger have replaced love and mercy. We are divided and we will get what we are asking for: lots of countries mad at us, no character, angry shaming, name calling, bad interpretations of the Bible, sucker-punches, twitter wars, and childish rants that promote torture, revenge, pride, and excess. (All that stuff Jesus warned the church against.)
So onward we go.
(This would be a great time to pray for our country and the Church.)
