The Jagged Word Moves to Washington, D.C.

By Graham Glover

That’s right, with authors currently in Florida, California, Michigan, Washington, Illinois, and Arkansas, and readers located around the world, the Jagged Word will soon be represented in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.!

In a day and age when our civil, especially, but also our theological discourse is at a crossroads, living and working in the epicenter of the American experiment should prove to be an interesting endeavor. For so many reasons, D.C. represents everything that is right and wrong about America. It embodies our best attributes and our worst characteristics. It is America in all its glory. And soon, the Jagged Word will be buried deep in the belly of its bureaucracy.

I’m curious to see if D.C. is as the pundits, columnists, bloggers, and basically everyone who opines about politics believes it is – or if it, despite its flaws, truly is the heart of our great democratic republic. Like all of us, I want America to be great. Like some, I think it can be better. Like others, I think it has never stopped being so. Now, I’ll get to see it firsthand. I’ll get to breathe it, consume it, live it. And I couldn’t be more excited about the challenge and humbled by the opportunity.

We here at the Jagged Word like to stir the pot, and I’m sure that pot is about to be stirred in ways it never has…

  1. Washington D.C. is the official seat of power for our country, and it has always been a place of intrigue and corruption, and it is only by the grace of God that this country has survived the contentious history of this republic. Greed for power, money, and influence, manipulation of citizens, ineptness, have been characteristics of our own country since its founding. Virtuous leaders are too often influenced by scoundrels, and we, as Americans, cannot blindly assume our values are above or superior to the rest of the world. Indeed, we love our nation and many of us would die defending it, but our government, our courts, our elected officials and our institutions fall short in too many ways to enumerate. Are we better off than countries under dictators and communists, under Islamic laws, or intolerant progressives….yes.
    It is only by the grace of God we have survived this far as a nation, and we as Christians, had better keep trying to influence our country for good, lest we find ourselves just one more failed civilization on the dust bin of history.

    1. John, completely agree that the grace of God and our continual engagement in the public realm are key. It will definitely be an adventure being in the midst of the intrigue and corruption you note!
