Thanks for the links to the several items about Julian Bond. With regard to people who lived during the 1960s civil rights era, there is a very interesting article in the local section of Washington Post by Michael e Ruane about Ruby Sales, the woman whose life was saved by Jonathan Daniels. Ruane's article tells the story of how Sales' life has unfolded since that terrible day in August 1965.

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.
