Able Example

“Shortly after the close of the Civil War, a black man entered a fashionable Church in Richmond, VA, one Sunday morning at the beginning of a communion service. When the time came, he walked down the aisle and knelt at the altar. A rustle of shock and anger swept through the congregation. A distinguished gentleman with a gray beard stood up, stepped forward to the altar and knelt beside his colored brother. Captured by the gesture and the gentleman’s spirit, the congregation followed. The gentleman who set the example…General Robert E. Lee.”

“After all is said and done, all that remains is LOVE.”
