July 4, 2008


I won't be celebrating the Fourth of July today. Instead, I am traveling from San Diego to Philadelphia for a meeting with fellow young, Anabaptistic leaders across North America to discuss what we might hope to be and accomplish together. But I also will not be celebrating the Fourth of July because I am not a patriotic person. I know this seems hypocritical to some. But for me, I've come to the point that it seems hypocritical to pledge allegiance to or celebrate the State when I believe being a citizen of Jesus' Kingdom is more primary than the State. Anyways, I'm boarding a plane in a few minutes. So, I'll stop and ask what are your thoughts?
