I find it interesting that the American flag is prominently displayed at many American churches. I wonder what its presence teaches people indirectly about Christianity, power and violence. It certainly must be a source of confusion when the American agenda includes violence and coercion to maintain power and control. America's less beautiful parts may get mixed up with Jesus' message of radical peace and unlimited forgiveness.
What about your country points toward Jesus' way?
What about your country points away from Jesus' way?
God, I want eyes to see the difference between your way and my country's way. I need your humility and courage.
