I’d like first to read excerpts from a letter that I wrote to a friend who in this life is a black man.

Last night I saw the movie, The Hurricane, about Rubin Hurricane Carter. I could not help thinking of you during the movie and many tears ran down my cheek because of your own suffering due to your wrong choices. I do not think you will continually be a victim to those wrong choices. Sooner or later, I know you will make more right choices. In all of the choices that you have had to make in life, I applaud you for those you made which you felt were the right choices based on the oppression by the white man to the black race. I am sure you always did the best with what you had to deal with except those exceptions where you really blew it. Even then, I am sure you were up against the wall that the greedy, white corporate powers put up around you and your race, not only your race in America, but in other countries as well. When I cried at the movie, I cried not only for you and Carter, but for all the oppressed people in the world. I cried because I felt so helpless to help you and them. I cried because bad things happen to good people, and I know you are a good person. I know there is no iniquity in you, maybe some sin, but mostly error. Men like Nelson Mandela, Hurricane Carter, and others who have suffered because of their righteous convictions are few. Going through so much in the face of such injustices, they have been able to become men and women to look up to men of God, men of love. I heard today that Denzel Washington received a Golden Globe award for best actor and that he brought the real Rubin Hurricane Carter onto the stage with him to accept it. Up on the stage Denzel Washington said something like, “God is love, and this man Carter is all about love.”I have faith in you faith that you will see through the dark void and the web that Caligastia, through the greed of those in power, has placed upon you. I have faith that you will allow God to pull you out and free you. I know you are a good person. I can understand the black race so well, not because I have lived black lives, which I have, but because in this life, I have had to take the path opposite of the status quo to follow God’s calling. This has led my enemies to define me with all sorts of negative definitions to demonize me. So, I understand what it is like to be a good person in a black skin. You are in my prayers.

You are loved,
Gabriel

Teaching by Niánn Emerson Chase

The December 31, 1999 issue of Time magazine shows Albert Einstein as their selected person of the century with Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Mohandas Gandhi as runners up. Many other individuals who had great influence in the twentieth century were considered, such as Martin Luther King Jr., Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and Adolph Hitler, just to name a few. The articles in Time about these individual men are how they have impacted others to move into a leadership position in their fields and how they affected the world. According to Time, Einstein’s theories not only altered the consciousness of the scientific world, they reverberated beyond science influencing modern culture. His theory of relativity indirectly paved the way for a new relativism in morality, arts, and politics. And the theory of relativity had its affect on religion also. There was less faith in absolutes, not only of time and space but also of truth and morality. It allowed individuals to pull away from traditionalism and explore other ways to look at reality. Many writers, painters, scientists, mathematicians, and theologians arose with products of ideas that deviated from the status quo and thus, minds were expanded.

Time’s criteria for selecting the person of the century had to do with three great themes that the twentieth century will be remembered for. These are the three themes: Read the rest of this entry »
