How to Protest with Original Blessing

From Danielle Shroyer

I’ve had some conversations in recent days about how to hold onto original blessing while engaging actively in social justice. I love this question because one of the common misconceptions about original blessing is that it’s a worldview that requires you to hold everyone’s hand and sing camp songs and think happy thoughts, which is never really possible but certainly not possible in a world where very real evil is happening.

Luckily for us, original blessing requires nothing of the sort.

Original blessing requires us to see the world as God sees the world. That means we must call out injustice when we see it, protest in defense of human rights when it is threatened, speak up to protect the environment when harm may come its way. We fight for these things not despite of original blessing but because of it. Continue here.
