When I was a young pastor in my twenties, I stood in front of what had been an all white church. This was well over thirty years ago and I welcomed the first African-American member to that church. I had death threats. There were people who said they would leave the church, but instead I held my ground. I said he goes, I go. Government can do some things, but only God can change people's hearts. Government can put us in the same classrooms, but government can't make classmates go home and be friends when school is out. Government can make sure that the doors to every public building are open to everyone. Government can ensure that we share schools and streets and lunch counters and buses and elevators and theaters, but let us never forget that only God can give us the power to love each other and respect each other and to share life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
