Crazy Christians (Suzanne Foucault)

Words cannot do justice to the experience of worship at General Convention. Two days ago, we heard Bishop Michael Curry of North Carolina at the daily worship service, this one dedicated to Harriett Beecher Stowe. Curry took us from Harriet Beecher Stowe and the underground railroad and freeing slaves to Steve Jobs who told us to "Think Different" and changed our access to global communications. Curry's theme was about being able to envision change, and acting on it. He admonished us to be "Crazy Christians" who are crazy for peace, justice, and Jesus. He closed with a quote from Albert Schweitzer:

"the people who are crazy enough to think  they can change the world, are the ones who do."

I wish you all could have been there with me to hear Curry's spellbinding sermon.....and in my heart, you were.
