Douglass Blvd Christian Church

an open and affirming community of faith

n open and affirming community where faith is questioned and formed, as relationships are made and upheld. 

The Question Isn't "Where?" but "What?" (John 18-33-37)

But Jesus doesn’t deal with others first as threats to be feared; he embraces them as sisters and brothers created and loved by God, and therefore, deserving of our profoundest attempts at love and welcome.

So, when Jesus says his 'kingdom is not from this world,' he ain’t kidding. The kind of realm over which Jesus reigns appears unintelligible to a world that believes threats are to be eliminated (by violence if necessary). Any kingdom that takes as its guiding principle the need to 'love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you' is bound to appear alien to our current world.
