Action, Yes! War, No!

Yes, I believe that we have a connection to the people in Iraq. Yes, we need to act on their behalf. I have not been given or seen evidence that we are at risk or need to defend ourselves or our land in this conflict. Until such evidence is public and plain I must still promote the Gospel. Going to war is simply not what Jesus would be doing. I would love to join in a conversation with anyone about what our actions may be short of violence.

Over the next two weeks, hundreds of events will be taking place across the country to voice opposition to the push for war. The events are catalogued at
this website. Thanks to Sr. Mary Whited, C.PP.S. for this link.
