Smokescreen

“I wonder what would it take for Christians in this country to stand up for their faith?”  says the bishop’s wife to me as we share the washing up.

We are God’s gift to eachother at a course we are attending.

Both seeking to to hone our skills in dialogue as we bring women of different faith traditions together, we find ourselves constrained by the suffocating smokescreen of political correctness.

“You know, where I come from Christians are dying for their faith.” Her words hangs heavy in the air as we turn to tackle the dishes.

 

One thought on “Smokescreen

  1. PC is one of many smokescreens we face. We need wisdom to communicate dispite the smoke! We need to continue to have grace and humility when we know that the expression we see in the UK of another faith tradition is different from its expression elswere. Some times I think of the phrase “there are none so blind as those who don’t want to see.”
