Loving one’s enemies

Here’s how to do it.

“Jesus says [to] love our enemies,” said Mullen, who holds a degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. “So I was sitting in Starbucks and thought, maybe I’m the one person who needs to do something.”

So she did. Martha Mullen arranged for Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s burial in Virginia. The story is here.

One single, almost anonymous Christian witnesses to the love of Christ and offers an alternative, not only to the protestors at the funeral home in Worcester but everyone else who turned this into a political and cultural spectacle and disgrace.

Thanks be to God!

One thought on “Loving one’s enemies

  1. One of my favorite things about Christianity is the commandment to love our enemies. So powerful, so contrary to the ways of the world, so healing and profound. If we followers of Jesus were to learn how to put it into practice, the whole world would be turned upside down.
