Political guidelines in brief

Over the last week or two I have posted the following five guidelines for kenarchic politics.

Make children a priority

Care for creation

Make the poor a priority

Confront the powers

Publicise the testimony of Jesus

These issue from a particular understanding of the Jesus who we encounter in the gospels. They represent a political direction consequent on arguing from the gospel Jesus to the character of God, and set aside other views of God.

I have taken a brief break from blogging over the last week or so, partly to let these guidelines sink in and see what comments they engender, but also because I needed the break! Over the next few days I will post some key differences between understanding God incarnationally in this way, and some of the more traditional views, and underline the political implications.
