News from St. Francis 8/20 – 8/27/17

The following is the text that I offered at the recent
rally to Stand against Hate in Stamford. While the reason for our gathering was despicable and inconceivable in the 21st century (Are we not better than this? Have we not learned?), the strong showing and the overwhelming commitment to stand against the evil and hatred espoused in Charlottesville was extremely encouraging. Clearly, there is much more work to do for justice, equity, and peace to be realized for all people. This is a part of our baptismal calling, “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” Thank you for your part in the many ways that this finds expression in your life and our life together.
