Quotes

"I don’t know if it was the wrong thing to say, but a lot of people are going to the hospital and never returning,” said Wesseh, a Liberian native who serves as director of praise music at Curby Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis. “In Liberia, our hospitals are not advanced like in America. There are no isolation gowns, no protective equipment.”"
... He also noted that conferences in Montreat since the days of the civil rights movement have been "intentionally designed to nurture youth and adults to bear witness to Christ's work of reconciliation and to repudiate the separation of people on a racial basis."
"Part of the genius of the American experiment is that we’re committed to the right of each person to determine his or her deepest convictions, including one’s religious convictions,” Tidd said. “Chaplains are deeply committed to protecting religious freedom, day in and day outout in times of calm and times of crisis,” he added."
The lyrics "Here I am Lord, is it I Lord? ... I will go Lord, if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart" strike me every time I sing it
