Living in service.

When I consider the life of Senator Edward M. Kennedy I am moved by his constancy in service to the people of Massachusetts and our country. I have neither political eyes, nor thought. My heart is moved to this recognition that our greatest opportunities are found in serving each other.

Losing the last of the Kennedy brothers certainly marks the end of an historical era. And simultaneously, it offers the opportunity to remark a legacy. My hope is that as we watch and listen and read about Senator Ted Kennedy, we are called to remember not the tragedies, but the accomplishment on behalf of others. A life redeemed not by his service, but for service.

I wish to see and be moved to act by his compassion, his dedication, his service, his faith and faithfulness. I want to move in giving the bread to the least of these and the cup of water also.
