The announcement shortly before Christmas 2010 got lost in the whirlpool of events. For the first time, a unit of the German Federal Armed Forces has been stationed in the French Alsace. The 600 soldiers belonging to the 291st Infantry Batallion (Jägerbataillon) are sharing barracks with the 2nd French Armored Brigade.
Imagine the long path that Germany and France have taken since World War I and World War II! How good it is when politicians and societies desire peace and solidarity and not war and supremacy. Christians should thank God that he has heard their prayer for peace-loving rulers and pray that war never breaks out in Western Europe again.
