Grace Under Fire

by Ray Higgs | August 2010

Thank you for the revealing “A Visit to Birkenau” (by Sami Awad, May 2010).

Thank you for the revealing “A Visit to Birkenau” (by Sami Awad, May 2010). How noble of those, both Palestinian and Israeli, who work sacrificially to break the cycle of violence, who seek to love their oppressors, forgive those who sin against them, and work for peace in the face of so much hate, hurt, and loss. God give them grace and courage.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

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

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
