Les Stewart’s franchisee prayer.

October 4, 2019


Mine is a most peaceable disposition. My wishes are: a humble cottage with a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, the freshest milk and butter, flowers before my window, and a few fine trees before my door; and if God wants to make my happiness complete, he will grant me the joy of seeing some six or seven of my enemies hanging from those trees. Before death I shall, moved in my heart, forgive them all the wrong they did me in their lifetime. One must, it is true, forgive one’s enemies– but not before they have been hanged.

Heinrich Heine 1797 – 1856

Freedom is not free.

You have to take it.

Backing out the religious framework, if anyone were listening…

  1. start by talking (empowering voices),
  2. you are poor, no matter how much $ you have if you are impoverished in your fundamental freedoms and justice,
  3. expect anger when you start to resist, and
  4. you have to take your own liberation.

James H. Cone
