Today I am 60! Yay for me and for the many groups of people who have helped me get safely to this age. As our nation continues down a path of rationalizing hatred, I cannot help but think about the ways history has affected my life.

The Beloved Community

Martin Luther King first made a reference to the Beloved Community in a 1956 speech celebrating the Supreme Court decision that desegregated the buses in Montgomery, Alabama after a 12-month boycott by the local black community: “The end is reconciliation; the end is redemption; the end is the creation of the Beloved Community.”

Like many of us, I watched the entire funeral service for Senator John McCain on Saturday. The stories, memories and music were framed by the liturgy of the Episcopal Church, all contained within the magnificent confines of the National Cathedral. And like many of us, I was proud to be an Episcopalian.
