Praying for peace …

Yesterday my friend Don Golden recommended a documentary to me called “Why We Fight.” Last night I found out it’s available on the internet. In fact, you can watch it right here … It’s about 90 minutes long, but well worth it. It’s one of those documentaries that you will always remember.

Then today I came across this on “How the Pentagon Bankrupts America.”
The current economic crisis will bring a lot of suffering to a lot of people. But it also brings opportunity – to face the frightening and unsustainable growth in our spending on weapons and war, what Eisenhower called “the military-industrial complex.” Perhaps on the other side of this conflict, we’ll have revised our priorities more in the spirit of Micah 4:1-4.
May the peace of Christ be with us all.
PS: Just saw this related post at the sojo blog by Ryan Beiller. When you only have a hammer, you try to fix everything by banging it, and when your hammer is “the military industrial complex,” you can predict what happens. Wise words.
