Anamnesis - Remember Who You Are
Brothers Aramis and Porthos know my fondness for Distributist ideas and ideals. But on this Memorial Day in the United States, and elsewhere around the world, it is easy to forget the connection between our agrarian heritage -- our biblical mandate of good stewardship of the Earth and every person's closeness to the need to grow food, whether we recognize it or not.
We laud the work of such farmers as the Yeoman Farmer, whose blog provides a well needed wonderful dose of wisdom, faith, and reality. (Go and read!)
But this Memorial Day, may I humbly implore you to carve a scant fifteen minutes from your (all too) busy schedule to watch this video by Matthew Kraus.
Make it part of your devotional time today. It may change your life.
