Did I get your attention?
The “P-word”….. it was all over the news about a year or so ago. “Privilege”.
Even this week, with elections around the country, the “p-word” seems to still be lingering around the news cycle.
But, truthfully, privilege is both confusing and crystal clear to me. I really look forward to our discussion this week. I know there are many sides to this issue.
As always, I love the nuggets from our author. Early on in the chapter, Tyson writes:
“But that’s not the way of Jesus. As the Son of God, he had more privilege than any of us will ever know. As the Son of Man born in a stable and laid in a manger, as the Messiah with no place to lay his head, and finally as the Lamb of God hanging on the cross, he gave us privilege to a more profound extent than anyone else could ever match. Yet in all of this, he modeled for us what to do with our blessings and opportunities; use them for others.”
-Jon Tyson, page 131
This week, please read Chapter 8: Sacrifice Must Resist Privilege.
Jon Paschal leads us this week. REMINDER that we’re fully virtual this week over Zoom. No Treehouse as I will be joining you all from Arizona….with hot coffee due to the 3-hour timezone difference!
I’ll see everyone at 7:30 am ET…..4:30 am Arizona-time!
I need a nap just thinking about that!
