October 2

Watching the protests in New York, I am reminded that today is Gandhi’s birthday/International Non-Violence Day.
When I was at Candler School of Theology, I was invited to the celebration of Gandhi’s birthday at the King Center and attended the celebration with a friend who had worked with Mrs King.
It was a very moving experience but most moving was a speech by Mrs King about how Gandhi was affected by the English women who were demonstrating for the vote while he was a student in England.
My prayers that we remain non-violent, but also that we are able to affect a change in our government and in how we do business.
