Two women, two realities, one experience of a God whose joyous love within them confronted the evil of their time. Thea Bowman’s powerful message continues to challenge a Church blind to the racism within its ranks and in a suffering world. “I come to my church fully functioning. I bring myself, my black self, all that I am, all that I have, all that I hope to become. I bring my whole history, my tradition, my experience, my culture, my African American song and dance and gesture and movement and teaching and preaching and healing and responsibility as gift.” Etty Hillesum responded to the horrors of the Nazi death camps with the same indomitable spirit. “I am in Poland every day, on the battlefields. I am with the hungry, with the ill-treated and the dying, every day. But I am also with the jasmine and with that piece of sky beyond my window.” Come drink the spirit of these giants of faith.
