Jesus once told his followers that they were to “be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” Mary Sue Rosenberger took these words seriously as she volunteered in a hospital during the Vietnam conflict. “yet,” Mary Sure admits, “trying to be harmless as doves in Vietnam was a frightening response to Jesus’ teaching.” As a Brethren Service volunteer, Rosenberger spent from March 1966 through September 1967 nursing Vietnamese people in a hospital in NhaTrang. Combining quotes from Newsweek with personal letters from home, this uniquely documented perspective on the Vietnam conflict reveals the doubts and questions of one who tried to witness for peace among foreign, and sometimes hostile, people. Rosenberger provides important insight into the usefulness and purpose of striving to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
