today at the brightly-lit, crowded library I realized how much I loved that space. here's my three favorite places for meeting people from backgrounds very different from mine:
these are the places people gather, hang out, get access to resources and services, learn how to be together, are places of mutuality and acceptance.
I long for the day when I could add "church" to that list. when we would be known for our diversity, instead of our segregation.
