Opposites Attract
In November of 2005, civil rights activist and former Ku Klux Klansman Claiborne Paul Ellis, known as C. P., died at the age of 78. Ann Atwater, a black civil rights activist and his friend, offered the eulogy at his funeral. When they first met, they hated each other. But Ellis had a change of heart after their 10-day forum on integrating schools in Durham, N.C. At the end of their experience, he renounced his Klan membership, became lifelong friends with Ann Atwater, and went on to organize black and white labor unions. Their story and others do much to inspire us and give us hope that we, too, can reconcile our differences and thereby make a difference in the world. The Chalice Choir will be singing.
