Morning meditation 7.4.15

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to a fourth of July parade, but it is my intention to go to the one in my hometown today. But I’m sure I will incur some wrath by those who don’t understand that I don’t say the Pledge of Allegiance nor do I stand when others do for it.

You see, I believe in ideals that are bigger than the United States of America; I pledge allegiance to the kingdom of God and all of its inhabitants therein, I pledge allegiance to doing my part ushering forth Perfect Shalom and Tikkun Olam, I pledge allegiance to not seeing the world as a bad place getting worse, I pledge allegiance to those who are deemed enemies, I pledge allegiance to those who are subjugated to torture and life in prison, I pledge allegiance to minorities social outcasts the marginalized the wounded the hurt the broken, I pledge allegiance to my LGBTQ brothers and sisters, I pledge allegiance to my brothers and sisters of all faith traditions, I pledge allegiance to my brothers and sisters for atheists and agnostics, I pledge allegiance to whoever I have wronged and whoever the church has wronged…

These are those that I pledge my allegiance and solidarity to, because the kingdom of God is bigger than flags and nations. May my pledge and my love be louder than the Pledge Of Allegiance!
