There is a great article in The Washington Post by Michael Frost entitled “Colin Kaepernick vs. Tim Tebow: A tale of two Christians on their knees” It focuses on Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow, two polarizing individuals. However, the heart of this piece is not about individuals but rather communities. Tribes of people who share so many unifying characteristics, yet manage to tear the whole apart, bringing the community to its knees.
This image of falling to one’s knee has many connotations, but as I see this manifested in the communities around me and that I am a part of, I wonder if it might be a place for humility to raise us back on our feet. In a world that is seriously confused, might we have a little more hope, a little more harmony, love, and a little humility. -Seth Hendricks
