I think it’s time for the liturgist to figure out how to celebrate being an American. It’s a bit of a defiant step… most of my friends are used to seeing themselves as outsiders.
But now is not the time to cede our civic pride. I believe now is the time to stand up and say we are Peaceful Patriot Citizens. We serve our country. I’m so proud of all the many ways we do our work for Peace. We can proudly disagree with others and still claim our space.
Why this today? It’s National Day in Sweden and this was the pic Lorraine sent… Gives me a month to reflect and plan… How do Peaceful Americans celebrate the 4th of July?
Wish the weather were as sunny and beautiful here as in the photo! But, rain or shine, the work of Peace is always with us.
