Of Symbols, Racism, and Leadership

Rev. Dr. Ligon Duncan was asked by the Lt. Governor of Mississippi and the Speaker of the House for Mississippi to make a statement on the issue of whether the Mississippi flag ought to be changed or not.  Rev. Dr. Duncan is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (the denomination in which I serve), the chancellor over Reformed Theological Seminary (the seminary from which I graduated), and the former Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, MS where he served for almost 18 years.  His statement on this issue is sound, loving, and demonstrates good leadership.  The truth it contains has application far beyond the borders of Mississippi.

Review of Grandparenting with Grace
