Illuminating Letters

by Lynne Kodey | May-June 1996

I WAS DEEPLY moved by the letters written to Judge Wynn by some
of those arrested on December 7 at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda ("Dear
Judge Wynn...").

I WAS DEEPLY moved by the letters written to Judge Wynn by some of those arrested on December 7 at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda ("Dear Judge Wynn..."). They really gave me personal insight into the hearts and minds of those called to this important time of civil disobedience. I had heard about the action and supported it, but each of those letters just illuminated the underlying issues so beautifully and completely. What a testimony to Judge Wynn-and now to all of us-as to what Jesus would have done. God bless all of those who shared their letters with us. We've been blessed and challenged!
