Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove: A Message to the Church on the Fourth of July

As part of our conversation on the new book Reborn on the Fourth of July: The Challenge of Faith, Patriotism and Conscience by Logan Mehl-Laituri, we invited several prominent Christian thought-leaders to offer a message to the church on the Fourth of July. They considered: how should our faith inform our patriotism?

Here, author and  new monastic Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove shares why he can no longer hear fireworks without thinking about bombs dropping in Iraq.

 

Check out more “Messages to the Church on the Fourth of July,” from Brian McLaren and Lisa Sharon Harper … and coming tomorrow, Callid Keefe-Perry and Roger Wolsey.

What do you think:  What does it mean to love God and love Country?  How does your faith affect your patriotism?
