Esperanza: Cambiar la Política Colombiana

Queridos amigos, Esperanza: Cambiar la Política Colombiana 18/18/19 Ayer, el congreso colombiano votó para afirmar partes muy importantes de los acuerdos de paz que requerirían que el Ejército y los paramilitares confesaran sus crueldades a cambio de sentencias más ligeras, como hacen las guerrillas de las FARC. Esto no es solo una cuestión de justicia, sino una parte central de la curación de Colombia y de Colombia como nación y como individuos. Solo el perdón y la amnistía pueden exorcizar a los demonios que plagaron los corazones y los recuerdos del perpetrador y la víctima en Colombia. La justicia y la sanidad no pueden tener que ver con el castigo, sino con la restauración y la reconciliación. Duque, el actual presidente colombiano ha estado abiertamente (estado en las noticias) dando sobornos a congresistas para que voten en contra de esta legislación. Duque es claramente un simple títere del ex presidente Uribe. Duque está en contra de esta ley porque implementaría Uribe para la corrupción. La Corte Suprema tiene unas 3000 grabaciones de Uribe que dan órdenes telefónicas para que las personas sean asesinadas. Pero debido al poder político y al dinero de Uribe, ha podido evitar el procesamiento. (Increíble) Esta ley probablemente podría llevar a su procesamiento. El apoyo de este congreso a estas partes de los acuerdos de paz podría ser un gran paso hacia el cierre de la guerra. Un hospital militar dedicado a los soldados que han resultado heridos en la guerra está vacío debido a la tregua. Ninguna guerra es igual a ninguna herida. ¿No es genial? Uribe posee enormes ranchos en Colombia. Él es apoyado por otros grandes propietarios de ganadería. Grandes porciones de su tierra están ociosas. Existe un movimiento para imponer un impuesto elevado a esas tierras para obligarlas a vender las tierras al gobierno y luego el gobierno las transferiría a los campesinos. Significaría una reforma agraria real, un gran paso hacia la transformación de Colombia. Un médico venezolano que forma parte de la iglesia bautista aquí dice que la oposición a Maduro se compone principalmente de los ricos. Guiado es solo su instrumento. Oren por la honestidad política colombiana y venezolana. Chau, Jim o Jaime Actualización, estoy de vuelta en casa en Evanston. Mi rodilla está mejor, pero aún así no puedo caminar lejos o rápido. Tengo una cita. Tener una evaluación de PT. Es un cambio difícil volver a la vida aquí. Estoy muy agradecido por la comunidad y amigos de Reba. Di una oración por mi ajuste.

A Temper Tantrum

Dear friends: A Temper Tantrum On a shopping trip to Aldi’s I noticed a mother with a girl who was two and a boy who was one sitting together in her cart.. The boy was having a temper tantrum. I know how embarrassing that can be. Besides she was just beginning to shop. So I thought maybe I could help settle him down. So I went over and tried to talk to him. But he would have nothing to do with me. So I just started talking to his sister. “How old are you? What’s your name? How old is your brother? . “What is his name? She replied “Noah.” Hearing his name the boy started to quiet down and pay attention. After some more question and answers the kids and I shook hands and said goodbye. Then we both did our shopping. We passed each other several times. The kids would say “Hi” and wave each time we saw each other. Then as we went through the checkout the mother remarked, “Thank you so much, what is your name?” the kids waved saying “Goodby…

Outside the Box

Dear Friends,       Outside the Box I am here to share about making peace with Isis nonviolently. I came to this in my quiet time when I first heard of Isis. My response was, “I’m a pacifist so I prayed, “Lord, they are such bad people the only thing I know to do is get rid of them. Bomb them.” I suppose Jesus’ disciples, and many people today like me, might have had a similar response.
So I prayed, “Lord, I’m a pacifist. Show me Jesus’ way, there must be a better way.”Lo and behold I just happened to be reading pages in the book The Powers that Be where Walter Wink says “for every conflict there is a nonviolent answer” I prayed, “Lord, I don’t believe it, show me.” Then what came to me was we need first to understand what creates Isis support, why they hate us, what makes people join these terrorists, and to find a good solution. What if you went home tonight and your house looked like this?

(I pass out this picture of homes bombed by drones) And your family was killed by a US drone? Wo…

A Nazarene Peacemaker and a Thief

Dear friends, A Nazarene Peacemaker and a Thief 3/4/19 “Would you turn that mirror in on your side in so it doesn’t get knocked off.” said Juan to me. He then added “I have to tell you a story about that mirror. I was at a stop light and a guy come up and just broke off the mirror. I saw police nearby so I told them.” “They went and found him and brought him to me. They said to me, well here he is you can hit him or do whatever you want with him. Beat on him as much as you want. I said I don’t want to beat on him. That just didn’t seem right. They then called and another policeman who also said go ahead beat on him this is your chance. That might straight him out.” “They then got a commander who brought a bat and said well now you can beat him go to it. I than talked to the fellow and found he was very poor and stealing things as a way to survive. So I felt he was already in a deep in a hole. I didn’t want to push him any deeper.” “The pol…
