"Whosoever would follow me must..." Ched Myers

On this Good Friday, as we commemorate Jesus' cross amidst imperial resurgence and war, I offer this excerpt from Who Will Roll Away the Stone: Discipleship Queries for First World Christians (Orbis, 1994), pp 251f, 267.

Mark's invitation to "take up the cross" (Mk 8:34) is the central characteristic of discontinuity with the Domination system.  

"Whosever would"--this is one of Jesus' few universal prerequisites for discipleship.

PhotoApril 4 marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence” speech at Riverside Church in New York City. Not only was this his most consequential address (King was assassinated exactly one year later); we believe it represents the most significant public oration in U.S. history. In it King was prophetic in both senses of that word—speaking truth to power and anticipating the historical consequences of our collective choices.

Apocalypse Again: End or New Beginning? by Ched Myers

Today marks a month since the Election Day shocker in the presidential race.  I’ve been talking to younger colleagues who, in its wake, were paralyzed by incredulity and disorientation.  I certainly understand that a Trump presidency feels apocalyptic to them; I was as stunned and depressed as anyone.
