A Neighbor’s Choice Ep. 3: The Sacrifice of Mr. Slinkard

This week, meet Mr. Jefferson Slinkard, a log cabin home builder and writer from Arkansas. He tells the story of his father’s PTSD and how it allowed the tortures of the Korean War to spread to his family. Along the way, Jefferson shares stories of adventure, anguish, and triumph through peace and unconditional love. Unnecessary wars continue to create hidden generational victims who carry psychological scars for elective wars fueled by less-than-noble interests. Those who wish to imitate Jesus would do well to consider the sacrifices they demand of their neighbor.

Hosted by writer and speaker David Gornoski, A Neighbor’s Choice is a media platform and weekly show that examines the role of violence and religion in public life.
