More to Come

My friend and colleague, Dr. Jennifer Harvey, sent me a link yesterday to a roster of 131 pictures on the website of the Des Moines Register–folks lining up to get married.  Here is a picture of her (left), her partner Chris, and their daughter Harper. jen-harvey-and-chris-patterson-and-harper

Some people scoff at the importance of this moment, especially in Virginia where it seems so far away. But the tide is changing and I feel even the hard clay of Virginia shifting beneath our feet.

 Jen teaches ethics at Drake University. She and I, along with another colleague, co-edited a book together a few years ago. 

She and Chris and Harper (Jen gave birth just last year) are living the ethic of love and care, and they are making a difference, not only in Iowa but across the entire country where the story of God’s truth marches on.  

If you want to be inspired by this movement for justice, I encourage you to visit the link 

See the range of people, feel the joy, trust that there is more to come (and pray for the protestors).
