Dear Colleagues in Portland: For your courage, I thank you. For your
commitment to embodiment, I praise you. For your moral leadership and
tenacity in public life, I commend you to leaders everywhere. To do as
you do is faith. To pray as you pray is spirituality in its finest
form. We are all counting on you. And we are--even from 3000 miles
away--holding you up in prayer. Be not afraid!
