Mark Perrin, a friend, a darned good attorney and a man who cares about justice and poverty in Dallas and the nation, sent me the following note after our annual prayer breakfast and Mayoral Forum yesterday:
Doug and I were touched by our time at the breakfast this morning. Thank you.
Please tell Reverend Britt that, in our opinion, "soulless materialism laced with random acts of charity" is the best and most significant line since Bob Dylan wrote "people don't do what they believe in, they do what's most convenient - then they repent."
Thanks, Mark! And, of course, Gerald's statement, as always, was brilliant and powerful!
We have a lot left to do here in Dallas, don't we?
