Many of you will remember Bob Francis, the sociology student at the University of Chicago that came to up/rooted over the past year as he was doing his thesis on the emerging church in Chicagoland. When he finished that program he moved to Washington DC to do a year internship with Sojourners.
Anyway, he recently got to write an article for the God's Politics blog, a forum usually reserved for big-time faith thinkers like Jim Wallis, Brian McLaren, Tony Campolo, etc. The article is entitled, "What's the Face of True Patriotism?" Feel free to check it out, and, if so moved, add any comments (laudatory, critical, scathing, whatever) or interact with the discussion it has already spawned.
