This week highlights our 5th commitment: “Love
our neighbors and enemies, pursuing wholistic peace with justice.” We didn’t plan for it to coincide with the
anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the US, but it does.
When Jesus says, in Matthew 5:44, “Love your enemies and
pray for those who persecute you,” he was talking to the crowds of people who
had come to him. They were not the
powerful determining national foreign policy.
They were the poor and the sick.
