Carry On

by Joy Nelson | March 2010

I’m profoundly grateful to Dr. Vincent Harding for such a heart-rending, prophetic letter (“Our Children are Waiting for the Music,” January 2010). It helps me, as an anti-war activist and an Obama supporter, to carry on through the confusion. Christians, Jews, and Muslims need to recognize we’re all talking about the same God; it’s critical we learn how to live and work together, for global survival.

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)
