This is Darren McCutchen, and some day you are going to vote for hiim for something.
Darren, a former member of our Committee on Youth, made the diocese’s case to include Thurgood Marshall’s name in the Book of Lesser Feasts and Fasts this morning at the unholy hour of 7:30. (I’ve got a story on the outcome over on our main convention news page at edow.org)
The committee recommended referring the Marshall resolution to another committee, a so-so outcome from our point of view. But committee members spoke of how moved they were by Darren’s presentation. Darren, who worships at St. Timothy’s, told them that were it not for Marshall’s work in desegregating America’s schools, the chances that he would be giving a speech anywhere to anyone would be “nil.”
