A Memorial Day quote:
"Whatever our opinions on just war and pacifism, may we all join St. Francis today, praying to be made instruments of God's peace, doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with God, so there will be fewer casualties to memorialize in the future." ~Brian D. McLaren*
*CAVEAT: There are many areas with which I take issue with McLaren and his theological slooginess, but his 2010 Memorial Day sentiment really resonated with me.
