Lent Day 4: Boldly sign the ash cross on the stars & stripes of the flag, for repentance of the sins of the nation. For arrogant ethnocentrism; for extreme patriotism; for militarism &  illegal wars; for the Patriot Act; for scape-goating immigrants; for fencing our borders; for our divisive political polarization; for placing politics above finding solutions; for social policies that benefit the powerful at the expense of the poor; for making the flag an idol of devotion while ignoring the Constitution. May we come to see ourselves as part of a larger global community and use our wealth and power in more humanitarian & compassionate ways.
