Love Command: Chicago, Zimbabwe, Kenya
- I spoke this evening with Dennis Kimambo +254 722 388 275
http://www.repacted.org, Kennedy Owino +254 723 568 251
http://www.nafsiafrica.org and Rachel Wambui Kungu +254 721 626 389
http://www.peace-caravan.org who led us so ably in our Pyramid of Peace
http://www.pyramidofpeace.net this year to avert genocide in Kenya.
I delighted in the way that we worked together and how we encouraged each
other as leaders but also many peacemakers who inspired us. I took the
lead to organize us within a command structure yet in which our
participation was ever voluntary. I did this so that we could take and
give all authority.
Janet Feldman, who I admire, protested this approach, even as she helped
regardless. We disagree, so I will not attempt to involve her, but rather
will always welcome her influence and that of others who might not want to
be within our command structure, but will always do good where good can be
I have proposed the name Love Command for our command structure, so that
we might start new. Dennis, Kennedy and Rachel agree, and they agree to
serve as Commanders, as before, and we will also invite Lawrence Achami
when we set him up with the Internet. (They are all in Kenya.) I will
lead as Commander-in-Chief. I have purchased http://www.lovecommand.org
The purpose of our Love Command is to reach out in love wherever needed,
but especially, to "love our enemy". The idea is that "love is a command"
as preached by Jesus. We first command ourselves to love, and also, we
might command to love those who want us to. In this spirit, we can reach
out with authority and include everybody with our command to love.
Love Command is an informal project of the Minciu Sodas laboratory. I am
the sole proprietor of Minciu Sodas http://www.ms.lt , a business
registered in Vilnius, Lithuania.
We currently have few resources, little time and not much energy. What we
can provide is leadership for independent peacemakers who want our
support. * Dennis has agreed to lead our work to stop genocide in the
South Side of Chicago.
* Kennedy has agreed to lead our work to help in Zimbabwe.
* Rachel will, I hope, agree to lead our work in Kenya.
We welcome all to appeal for our leadership. We will grow together in
leadership as peacemakers!
