Lessons For A Society in Chaos

A white woman of Dutch ancestry
Taught him in Sunday School when
He was about eight years old to
Follow Jesus. She read to the
class the Sermon on the Mount,
the Parables, and Matthew 25.
Her’s wasn’t so much theology
As discipleship and learning
To love. As political chaos swirled,
Representative John Lewis, Civil
Rights activist and sufferer for
Justice offered words not spoken
Often by politicians. He said that one
Must continue to love while non-violently
Resisting — that one must always love
the oppressor. Nelson Mandela said
That he had to learn to let go of his
Anger and resentment toward those
Who imprisoned him or he would
Never have gotten out of prison.
He had to learn to love and never
Let it go.
