“Blessed are the Peacemakers”


I’ve been thinking about this t-shirt for nearly a year. I saw a woman in Lawrence, Kansas, wearing it last summer and, with her permission, took a photo, tucking it away for a future blog post. But I couldn’t write about it for a long time. Even now, I think that the sentiment is such sin that I’m not using the photo I took, out of kindness to I found wearing the shirt. It hurts my heart as much as Sarah Palin’s comparison of baptism and waterboarding.

But I’m sharing it here with you now, to remind my Christian friends of how easily Christians are captivated by violence.
