Lisa Sharon Harper: 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 Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners Lisa Sharon Harper reflects on the meaning of freedom.

 

Check back in the next few days for more “Messages to the Church on the Fourth of July,” from Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, Callid Keefe-Perry and Roger Wolsey.  And see what Brian McLaren had to say here.

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