“Whatever future ministry
that I might have as a priest,
it was given to me that day
to be a symbol of healing.
All the strands of my life
Had come together.
Descendant of slave and of slave owner,
I had already been called
Poet  Lawyer   Teacher   Friend

Now I was empowered                                                           
To minister the sacrament of One
In whom
There is no north or south,
No black or white,
No male or female.
Only the spirit of love and
Reconciliation drawing us all

Toward the goal of human wholeness.”
