Sometimes you have the privilege of getting to say the right thing at the right time, as with this nine-minute talk I gave the other night to a hugely supportive audience of Christians and Muslims at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood, WA. The event was called “Love in a Time of Fear,” but I wasn’t afraid, I was angry, and I said so:
Full video of the evening is here, with special thanks to Terry Kyllo of Catacomb Churches and to Jeff Siddiqui for bringing it all together, and to the excellent work of Lutheran Community Services Northwest in support of Syrian refugees.
Thank you, Lesley. This is SO important, and so well said.

Hoping you are well. Thankful you are angry.
Every voice raised is a step towards correction. There may be enough laid back listeners, but being a part of the vocal band is being more responsible, and important in awakening the sense of direction the listeners can take.
You always hit the mark with even few words said, Lesley….
Thank you, Lesley. Wonderful, as usual.
