A hot topic:

The following is a letter from Cliff Kindy, a member of Christian Peacemaker Teams. He is currently in Iraq, the latest in a series of many places where he has worked to help bring peace and the message of non-violence. I know not all of you who read this share the (admittedly difficult and sometimes hard to stand by) pacifist views that I as a member of the Church of the Brethren was raised on. I know not all of you reading this believe that those views hold justification. I know not all of you consider yourself Christian - or even religious, and that to some, my religion is a crutch or a blinder. I also know that I believe with all my heart in the message of non-violence, of love for all, and of the potential for peaceful reconciliation that I have found in my church. I believe in the Christianity that has shaped my life, that has influenced my decisions each time that someone has returned to me with praise and thanks. And I believe in Cliff and his work...I believe that there is potential for change in this world, through the efforts of one person's hands, one person at a time. One heart changed at a time.

That said, I'm going to tuck my soapbox back away now. I want you to read this...and I want to know what you think.
