I know people have first learned about Peter Gomes from his writings, particularly The Good Book. I first heard him preach at St Stephen's, Houston many years ago. His life was proof positive that we can become the people we were meant to be. There have been struggles, but aren't we fortunate to have had Mr Gomes to help us carry on?

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
