Dear Ones -
We live in prickly times.
If you listen to or read the talks I offer in Ordinary Life, you know that I am devoted to exposing all fundamentalism as the evil it is. And, I am also interested in exposing the shadow side of our culture and bringing it into the light. After all, one of the major goals of the psycho/spiritual work we are engaged in is to experience "enlightenment."
I was both delighted and sobered to read about a new monument that has been opened in Alabama. It exposes an aspect of the long history of racism in this country. One of the ways I found out about this was in an article that was in the June 20th, 2018 issue of the Christian Century magazine. Since then, I have talked to someone who has actually visited the site. I am putting it here for you to read, reflect on and pass on to others. I hope you find it as moving and enlightening as did I.
