Psalm 2 - let's get political ! or... How should a Christian think about current social issues ?

In the past month there have been political decisions made about abortion, health care, and gay marriage. Meanwhile a white man just murdered nine black brothers and sisters in their church, raising again the issues of racism and gun rights. What stance should a Christian who is trying to follow Jesus take on all these issues ? This morning, we take a fresh look at foundational principles from scripture that can help us begin to think about these things. While it is important where we finally end up on all these issue, perhaps it is even more important how we got to the stance we have taken. What does it mean to make Jesus Lord of my politics ?
