Today we pledge our ultimate allegiance, to the Kingdom of God
To a peace that is not like Rome’s
To the gospel of enemy love
To the kingdom of the poor and broken
To a king that loves His enemies so much He died for them
To the least of these with whom Christ dwells
To the transnational church that transcends the artificial borders of nations
To the refugee of Nazareth
To the homeless Rabbi who had no place to lay his head
To the cross rather than the sword
To the banner of love above any flag
To the One who rules with the towel rather than an iron fist
To the One who rides a donkey rather than a warhorse
To the revolution that sets both the oppressed and the oppressors free
To the way that leads to life
To the Slaughtered Lamb

--Shane Claiborne
