Here I Am, Send Me: The story of Jonathan Daniels

Here I Am, Send Me: The story of Jonathan Daniels

Just in time for the celebration of the Feast Day on August 14 honoring Jonathan Daniels. A documentary “exploring the life of a modern Christian martyr who gave his life bravely defending a young woman in Alabama during the civil rights era.” This is the story of a young Episcopal seminarian who went to Alabama to stand up for civil rights and justice. From Episcopal Marketplace:

Thanks so much for this and the opportunity to see the PBS video again. First heard of Jonathan Daniels back in high school listening to an audio tape featuring an extended interview with Malcolm Boyd. Difficult times, with lots of tragedy, but times that produced leaders who became a life long inspiration for others near and far.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
