Happy Mother’s Day -one last word:

Blood does not wipe our dishonor,
Nor violence indicate possession.
It would be natural to assume that, at almost 90 years old, the Rev. Malcolm Boyd has run out of steam. Yet here he is, still running. Running to fire up demonstrators demanding economic and social justice. Running to put together his latest column for national distribution. Running to deliver a major sermon at a packed church near downtown Los Angeles.
God’s love for us is not tied to fees or dues or down payments, or installment payments, nor does it come with threat of abandonment or repossession.
