LABC Update – November 22, 2023
November 21, 2023
Today is the 60th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The linked article is to the text of a speech given six days later on Thanksgiving Day 1963 by Jimmy Allen who was then head of the Christian Life Commission of the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
The most chilling sound of those dreadful four days to me was not the crack of a gun, nor even the weeping of mourners. It was the cheer which came from the crowd across from City Hall when word came that Oswald had been murdered in the basement of the police station. Here is hatred laid bare in all of its ugliness!
May we all be given the guidance we need to counter hate in our time and place.
