Friends,

You can read a recap of our CIVIL CONVERSATIONS ON RACE here (Session 1, Session 2, Session 3)Our NEXT SESSION is TONIGHT, August 10, 2020 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm!

We will discuss another one of Krista Tippett's On Being podcasts, this time an interview with the late John Lewis. 

Here is the link to the podcast, "John Lewis:  Love in Action":  

https://onbeing.org/programs/john-lewis-love-in-action/  

John Lewis was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Georgia’s 5th Congressional District. He was the author of Walking with the Wind: A Memoir of the MovementAcross That Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change, and March, a three-part graphic novel series. He died on July 17, 2020.

We have heard and we have seen the tributes and celebrations of the life of John Lewis, sometimes called the Conscience of the Congress. Here is the link to the transcript of the conversation:

In addition, you might want to read the opinion essay that John Lewis wrote to be published on the day of his funeral.  It was published on Thursday July 30th in the New York Times.

And finally - if you are interested in a video - the Ted Talk Legacy Project features and interview with Bryan Stevenson (Just Mercy) speaking with John Lewis.

And here’s a question as you listen and ponder.  Love in Action;  what does that look like?

Again - Thank you for your enthusiastic engagement, your generous listening, and your careful use of words.  Derek and I are so happy to talk with you and learn from you.  And we are grateful for the love that you show each other.
