What renews my belief in humanity

The mail I’ve received about the human rights ordinance in front of the Anchorage Assembly has not only been overwhelmingly in favor of ensuring that all Americans have their civil rights protected, but many have come from pastors and other religious leaders. That tells me that we do still have people out there who understand what Christ really stood for. I was beginning to despair that there were any of those Christians left in the world. Now I hope they make their voices as vocally heard at the Assembly meeting as they did on blogs and my e-mails. Bearing witness means going public.
