Freedom on the Loose
Congratulations to Aung San Suu Kyi, Noble Peace Laureate who was released from house arrest after spending 15 of her last 21 years incarcerated by the corrupt military regime of Myanmar! She is one of my wife's greatest heroes, and is an icon of gentle courage and the power of non-violence to unmask the unjust powers of the world. May her release loose more freedom upon the earth, especially for the 2,200-some captives who yet remain in Myanmar - and for all those groaning under the weight of the powers and principalities which continue to refuse to live with the true grain of the universe, that of peace, new creation, and reconciliation. And may we be bold to join her.
