Just Words…or…An Irrepressible Truth?

Sure. Words. And to many, JUST WORDS.

Not to me. I am grateful, never to forget how important gratitude is, in the very least keeps us from isolation and loneliness. In this regard I am grateful to my cousin, Tom Widlits, who shared this essay from the Oregonian.

I only ask two things. First, please read this. Read it to see its fitability [okay to draft new words] with you.


Hold up and mirror, and if you’re Caucasian ask: DO I HATE ANY OTHER COLORED PERSON?

Or, if you are “any other colored person”: DO I HATE ANYONE WHO IS CAUCASIAN?

Seems to me THAT question brings us to what keeps justice and peace beyond reach and nowhere close to our goal let alone experience.



About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
