Gene Robinson teaching us about Grace and Justice

Last night we had the privilege of watching a 15 minute address given by Bishop Gene Robinson at The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, on receiving his honorary doctorate. We knew of it as Parker was there (currently teaching there) with Kitty and both were blown away by it. Gene Robinson is an alumnus of the university. Ordinarily, alumni becoming bishops are automatically conferred with this award, but in his case it has come 20 years later. The grace with which he receives it and what he has to say is both inspiring and touching. We shared responses for the rest of the evening and also prayed for all suffering injustice and a lack of peace, using the Northumbria Community’s evening prayer. The link to hear the address is here:
