(RNS) "The blending together of God and country, which has not been
questioned in the past, is especially strong at a time of crisis, and
people simply do not understand why anyone would object. We are
experiencing our failure to address these issues in the calm, and during
the storm it is too difficult to have a rational conversation."
-- Duane Grady, a Church of the Brethren pastor from Anderson, Ind.,
speaking about how church representatives are dealing with questions
about the Brethren peace position since the Sept. 11 attacks. He was
quoted by Church of the Brethren Newsline.
