The Cost of Freedom

Categories: holidays


When you’re skiing today out on the lake…
When you’re barbecuing in the backyard…
When you’re relaxing by the pool with a mint julep…

…remember, for a moment, that it cost someone something very dear for you to do these things in freedom, and without fear.

Freedom isn’t free. Remember today those who have paid the ultimate price.

P.S. Those who remember what freedom cost…will not take it for granted, nor easily give it up.

Musician. Composer. Recovering perfectionist. Minister-in-transition. Lover of puns. Hijacker of rock song references. Questioner of the status quo. I'm not really a rebel. Just a sincere Christ-follower with a thirst for significance that gets me into trouble. My quest has taken me over the fence of institutional Christianity. Here are some of my random thoughts along the way. Read along, join in the conversation. Just be nice.

    The cost these days does not seem to be a shared cost. During the Vietnam War people protested loudly because many men were drafted and served involuntarily. These days the cost is not realized because only a few (and their families) sacrifice at all.
