The Martyrdom of Telemachus
With the recent events unfolding in Ferguson, MO and many other cities around the United States, I thought the story of Telemachus would be better suited for today's Formation Friday post.
The point of these posts, again, are to help us move forward in our own personal spiritual formation by looking back at some of the ancient and present heroes of our faith and learning how they interacted with the problems life tossed their way. I hope first and foremost that we begin to see how Scripture impacted them and how they truly lived out the words that they claimed to believe. With the rioting going on in the U.S. and the cries for justice and the cries for peace, for those who are happy about the decision and those who are angry I hope that we can see through the story of Telemachus that one person can change a system. One person, brave enough to stand up and peacefully proclaim the Gospel can impact the entire world.
