Kurt Vonnegut Jr. an Earthling author, is a folk hero among the Falloonians, having spent some time on our planet during your country’s turbulent times of the 1960s. So, today allow me to include a quote in his memory and hope that it strikes a harmonic set of two or more notes that is heard as if sounding simultaneously in you. (Editor’s note: he means “chord.”)
For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the Beatitudes. But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings. And of course that’s Moses, not Jesus. I haven’t heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, be posted anywhere.
