We wrote the cover line "An Experiment in Empowerment: Sojourners Neighborhood Center's 10th Anniversary" (September-October 1993) with Gandhi's "experiments in truth" in mind. It was in no way meant to imply that the Sojourners Neighborhood Center is experimenting with people's lives. Rather, the word "experiment" was meant to connote the risks, trials, and unpredictable joys inherent in any venture of faith.
Barbara Tamialis and Nathan Jernigan, center co-directors, wish it to be clear that the center is a presence that seeks to create an environment through which all involved might find resources to lead their own revolutions. We regret any confusion that may have resulted from our word choice.
