Armistice Day 2005

T]he ending of sacrifice [through Christ's death] means that we [Christians] don't continue to sacrifice other people to make the world come out all right... We've been given all the time in the world to announce that God would not have God's kingdom wrought through violence. That's good news. It's hard news, but it's good news. Stanley Hauerwas
