Peace and Justice Take Courage

This week the President has proposed a budget that is nearly 3 trillion dollars. Much of it is for war. Included in that budget is over 100 billion in cuts to Medicare and other vital services to our elderly. Call, write or visit your elected representatives and demand action. Today I was talking with a man who insisted that there is no peaceful solution in the Middle East. He’s a church going man. In fact he’s probably gone every Sunday since he was a young man. He’d be proud to tell you he is a Christian and I believe he is. What is a Christian? What is a Christian response to Iraq? What is a Christian response to this proposed budget. What is real justice?

I’ve included a link to Ava Lowery’s powerful presentation entitled WWJD. I hope you take time to view it. Peace.
