RLC Book Club with Diana Oestreich – July 2022
Join Shane Claiborne on July 24th at 7pm EDT to discuss the book of the month, Waging Peace, with soldier turned peacemaker, Diana Oestreich. You can join on Red Letter Christian’s Facebook, YouTube, or website live.
How do we confront christian nationalism + the militarization of our faith?
How do we honor veterans while refusing to support the violence of our military conflicts?
What does it look like to be a Peacemaker and be a witness to Jesus, the Prince of Peace?
Join us as we learn from expert in Christian Nationalism and military culture, Diana Oestreich, who waged war as a Christian Nationalist and laid her weapon down on the battlefield of the Iraq war to follow the Prince of Peace. Her book, “Waging Peace; One Soldiers Story of Putting Love First,” was Amazon’s #1 new release in war and peace.
Diana believes if she can change, anyone can change. Our country, and fellow christians desperately need us to reject the false “us versus them” narrative and invite them to wage peace. Listen to her story of war and how we can invite our communities to choosing Love of Neighbor over our entrenched divides over different political camps, religious wars and who belongs in America.
Now is the time that we confront the false narrative of Christian Nationalism, with the fierce sacrificial love of Christ that commands we Love our Neighbor and our enemy like ourselves.
Because love never fails.
Changing the world starts now, join us!
