what to make of this?
this is taken from a site that covered the “Global Day of Action” rally in san francisco on sat, march 20th, 2004. how is this a peace protest? do you think it’s true that the west coast was just numb to what happened on 9/11? this seems a tad bit insensitive. i’d like to know what this guy is thinking? now it’s easy to point out some of the silliness at this rally. after some thinking i wonder how i am making every effort to make peace happen around me and my effort in the ministry of reconciliation.
i want to let my message be spoken by my life and not my words. i strive to be obedient to Christ, living to step aside and give room for the prince of peace to rule. it is not to appear timid in conflict but with a brazen face against it. for we are confident that there is a better way, one higher than ourselves who is able to do much more than we can possibly ask or imagine.
