Overcoming the evil of dehumanization

Ed Bacon's latest blog -- 8 Habits of Love -- was just posted to the Huffington Post ... and I think it's one of the best summaries of what post-imperial Christianity has to offer a world hungry for healthy spirituality I've ever read.

Here's a quote to get you started:
"My tribe is that of the world, and everyone, everywhere is already included ... I believe that the greatest evil we face today is dehumanization. It's the root of war. It's the root of retaliation. It's the root of the spiraling cycle of violence that we see around us. It's the root of bigotry. It's the root of economic injustice. Often, our instinct is to withdraw into our fearful selves and give into dehumanization. We gain a false sense of power and righteousness by excluding others." -- Ed Bacon
Read the rest here ... and then share the good news of God's inclusive love made available to absolutely everybody.

Ready. Set. GO!
