OK, so I don’t have a Pope. Being a United Methodist we have bishops but they are no Pope. Different system. Different personnel. But, I have to say, I do appreciate it when the Roman Catholic Pope Francis leads by example in so many ways. Recently, he’s been leading in missional ways.
Sojourners has the following account:
Pope Francis on Sept. 2 told his followers to clamber down from their lofty skyscrapers, reclaim public spaces, and rejoin communities….
No feat of engineering or politics is able to substitute the contribution made by families to a city, the pontiff added.
“We must come down from the towers and the armored rooms of the elite, to once again frequent the houses and open spaces of the masses, open to the love of the family,” Francis said.
