So I admit, Bill wasn't there. But the Reverend was. And that man can preach. Say what you will about his personal life, that man can deliver a sermon. I'm sure I would have appreciated it much more if I could have understood him a little better, but oh well. I was sitting against the wall at the standing room only funeral in the sanctuary of my church. Jesse spoke well, proposed healthy theology, and thoroughly involved his audience...those mourning the late Mrs. Obey. Like Volma, she was another civil rights leader living in Austin. God bless these brave leaders. May we all show such courage.
