Power down

Power down living is all too often the way the world runs. It brings us such things as child abuse, spousal abuse, preemptive war and sanctioning torture. Developmental psychologists also tell us that it is more of a childlike behavior than that of a fully mature adult. To varying degrees, James and John when asking to sit at Jesus right and left hand were thinking in a power down manner. Our current administration in is pushing for preemptive war, excessive use of signing statements, torture and the disbanding of detainee rights, thinks and acts in a power down manner. The individual who killed the Amish girls acted in a power down manner. And from time to time, so do most of us. The calling of a Child of God is to grow beyond that and expect those we elect to do the same.
