"Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” Ruth Bader Ginsburg
"Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.” John Lewis

Pastor Pam Tinnin, Guerneville Community Church-UCC, Guerneville, California. With the pandemic restrictions still with us, I present my weekly messages from home. This week was incredibly inspiring. After these years of division and rancor and hate, we saw so much that indicates we may be entering a time of hope, reason and commitment to the common good. Watching the inauguration of President Biden and Vice-President Harris, I felt we were at last celebrating that we may transition to a time of compassion, integrity, and courage. I must say the incredibly gifted poet Amanda Gorman who ended the event presented us with a picture of what has happened and what the future may hold. What an amazing gift she gave us, a vision of what we can be. An old acquaintance who is not a “church person” wrote me and said, “this is a picture of what church should be” and I fully understood what he meant. Amanda Gorman ended with these words, “For there is always light, if only we are brave enough to see it, If only we are brave enough to be it.” I believe that this is our task as people of faith—be brave enough to see it; be brave enough to be it. Here is a story that I hope will help us do both.
