11.18.15, World Citizenship, Rev. Kent Matthies

As the US Presidential campaigns heat up, we all are called to consider America’s place in the world.  Eighteenth century German philosopher Immanuel Kant said, “the greatest problem for the human species, the solution of which nature compels him to seek, is that of attaining a civil society, which can administer justice universally.”  Ever since ancient Greeks and Romans and before, people have articulated the desire for a true world citizenship.  We have made many important advances and have a long way to go.  How do we respond spiritually and politically today?
