Veteran’s Day

Dear Mennonites,

Today is Veteran’s Day.  I thought I would remind you since there are very few Mennonite veterans.  It’s a day to celebrate and thank those who have served in our armed forces to protect our country and freedom.  While you may not agree with that you are benefiting from the freedom that they fight for.  I’m not judging you because you don’t believe in war.  I’m just encouraging you to be thankful and to pray not only for peace but for those who fight for our peace.  Be thankful today for the peace that we have.

  1. Good reminders there Brian. How about also expanding your veteran’s day thanks to those who have served outside of the military and expanded our freedom through their service. Thanks to our “veterans of conscience” who found alternate means to serve. (1W, Voluntary Service, Christian Peacemakers, MCC, Civilian Public Service, among many others). Can we thank them all across ideological lines?
