I was reminded in the news this evening about Arizona’s deliberations when a national holiday was created to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Of the 50 states that adopted that holiday, where do you reckon Arizona came in? Number 50. Dead last. Way behind states like Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi, which one might have expected to drag their heels. So what the heck is going on in Arizona? I live in a backwater, reactionary state, but even I am surprised by Arizona.
What I want to hear now from Episcopalians in Arizona is: How can we support you in ways that will make a real difference. Not just sign a petition or sign up to some Facebook group. What will make a difference?
