Earlier this month I had the opportunity to sit on a panel during a forum at Washington National Cathedral entitled, "Pathways to the Beloved Community." Before the panel, the other three panelists and I had the chance to meet. I was immediately impressed with these three community leaders. Even more, I was glad that the Cathedral elected to invite a high school student and the student's mother–who was additionally a nurse–as part of the panel. Cultivating the beloved community, nurturing ways of peace and justice can start within households. It may not be the stuff that seems newsworthy but its the kind of stuff that really can transform communities. Their story was awesome to hear!
