It was 50 years ago this July that Neil Armstrong uttered the words "That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". Another giant leap for mankind was 30 years ago this November 9th when East Germany announced an easing of travel restrictions to the west leading to the demolition of the Berlin Wall, the dissolution of the former Soviet Republic and the rapid increase of human rights and religious freedoms for almost 200,000,000 oppressed people. Many of these people are once more persecuted for religion's sake. Right here in the United States and even in Texas, we struggle to define the extent of human rights and religious freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution and Bill of Rights and once take for granted by Americans. This is not an easy task and people of faith and good will must rise to the call of duty to defend our constitution's noble heritage. We invite you all to join the conversation on October 24th and learn how to take local action to ensure our human dignity and freedoms are defended and preserved. Each of us can truly make a difference in our congregations and communities. Plans for the Second Annual DFW Summit on Religious Freedom at SMU are nearing completion for this great celebratory year.
