72 years ago today Dietrich Bonhoeffer was killed at the Nazi concentration camp in Flossenbürg. I took this photo in 2009 at the spot where he was murdered by his government, a government that invoked the name of Christ while also demonizing people of other faiths, nationalities, abilities, sexual orientations, and political parties.
Bonhoeffer saw through the lie of "German Christianity," and chose instead the self-sacrificing Christianity of Jesus. We too must reject the lie of "American Christianity," and choose instead the path of the price of peace, who entered Jerusalem not on a war horse but on a donkey.
Reading chapter 10 of "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder feels incredibly appropriate for Holy Week. And the lessons of Holy Week feel incredibly relevant for 2017. Truth matters.
Our almost 4-year-old has visited 20 states + the District of Columbia! Kara got 50 before turning 30, I'm on pace to get 50 before 40, but Zoe is on pace to get 50 before 10!!!

Who got a commentary on the OT books of 1st & 2nd Kings by radical Christian activist Daniel Berrigan today? 👍🏼👍🏼 THIS GUY!
Trump's budget as the antithesis of the prophet Isaiah's vision. Turning plowshares into swords. “Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.”
A day removed from Daylight Savings Time and someone is in a MUCH better mood.
Well this is what we were cooking up. Here's our Lenten stage design. A graffiti/street art motif also highlighting the Open Door Foundation in Romania and their work helping survivors of trafficking. Props to über-intern, @kelseycole for all her work on this. #plnuworshiparts
