The foundation of Christendom is now cracking and crumbling after centuries of enjoying a position of power and influence. Maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe it’s even a God thing.  Maybe God is actively dismantling the false idols of power and security amassed through decades of colonization and Christendom.  Maybe the gospel call for love and liberation simply can’t mix with the mortar of slavery, forced assimilation, and white supremacy upon which many of our churches was built.  Maybe the foundation Christianity in the U.S. is simply too shaky to stand the test of time as moral arc of the universe bends toward justice.  Maybe we are in the midst of our own Babel moment.
