Repenting for war

Dear friend,

Next week will mark five years since the United States invaded
Iraq. We all lament the suffering and violence that continue
after these five heartbreaking years, and we all share in
responsibility for a war that has been waged in our names and
with our tax dollars.

That's why I've added my name to a public statement repenting
for the Iraq war, which Jim Wallis and other Christian leaders
will be releasing next week - with the signatures of thousands
of Christians of all theological and political stripes.

Support for U.S. wars and foreign policy is still the area where
Christians are most "conformed to this world" (Romans 12:2). We
must commit to put our love for Christ ahead of obedience to a
misguided government, and to ask our brothers and sisters to
join us in working for peace.

Will you join me in signing the statement?
