The Violence of Grief

Thank you for your words. It would be helpful if those in power who claim to be Christians and those who are in the military were taught the message that you shared. Too often the Christian church has blessed nationalism and violence because of the perverse belief that "God is on our side." Jesus, the Prince of Peace, blessed peacemakers as God's children and taught the love of enemies. We need to teach the gospel of reconciliation and live it before recruiters and the Masters of War entice our children in to service.
