The news and media are full of discussions about religious radicals. Their extreme actions dominate our headlines and political conversations because their behavior is so far from society's comfort zone. Much of this kind of behavior that we see is negative and destructive, but maybe there's something we can do about it.
Perhaps it's time to think about a different kind of religious radicalism. Can we commit ourselves to a radically different spirituality? One that will likely get far less attention from the media, but do far more to change the world? Perhaps, by following the radically counterintuitive teaching of Jesus to love our enemies, we can become a new kind of extremist with positive and constructive effects. Maybe the most radical thing we can ever do is to truly follow the Prince of Peace.
