A Better Way

I don't understand why if current schools are failing, the solution is more schools.
I don't understand why if current churches are not meeting the needs of their neighborhoods, the solution is more churches.
As if more men with guns will end a war quicker.
As if more money will make a wealthy person's life happier.

Why do we keep using the same old colonizing systems that have only served to perpetuate injustice? It is time for a new way. Time for a new path of love and coming alongside and dialogue with the oppressed and mutual care and sacrifice of self. In our world of greedy, power-hungry capitalists, does the way of the homeless Jesus have anything to say to those of us who are truly ready for something better?
