On a whim, I added a button to my sidebar. I have no right to – I was too young to have participated in Freedom Summer or the Freedom Rides. But I hope that I would have stood beside them if I could have. I’ve written about these people and their fruit before. I keep thinking that the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was a kind of movement that we don’t see today.
- They were hopeful.
- They were peaceful.
- They sought to love their enemies.
- They did not love their lives unto death.
We don’t see that in churches much today either.
