This Is Beautiful

I found this quote in an article referenced by Gene Robinson in my prior post. From Catholic theologian M. Shawn Copeland:

If my sister or brother is not at the table,

we are not the flesh of Christ.

If my sister’s mark of sexuality must be obscured,

if my brother’s mark of race must be disguised,

if my sister’s mark of culture must be repressed,

then we are not the flesh of Christ.

For, it is through and in Christ’s own flesh that the ‘other’ is my sister,

is my brother;

indeed, the ‘other’ is me…

As much as I enjoy writing, I cannot write such beautiful, poetic words as these, so I am in awe when I find them.

I'll have to look that up. He's someone I would love to meet, as well. I've heard interviews with him, and you're right - I love his sense of humor.

He is exactly where he needs to be to use his talents and his wisdom well.
