Just a Hunch

For some reason, this feels like it's important. Have you ever had the feeling that something that seems pretty minor will have a huge effect down the line? That's what I have over this sitch:

For the past few years, I've been wondering why there was no clergy speaking up anymore. Where are today's Berrigans, King, all the priests and pastors who work for social justice? It seems to me that it's part of being a religious leader to set the tone for morality and social good. The last time the churches were this corrupt and uninvolved, there was a Reformation. That time, it was the corruption of monks and priests, and especially bishops and abbots that did it. Now, the C of E community itself doesn't want to do what Jesus Would Do. It looks like some of the clergy would do, as shown by their resignations. I just have a feeling about this. Could be wrong. We'll see.

Always pay attention to that uneasy, creepy feeling up your spine.

Maybe that's why they call it a hunch?
