Remembering Justice Ginsburg: To my mom, she was ‘Ruthie’

September 23, 2020

WHY WE WROTE THIS
When public figures reach the status of icon, it can be easy to lose sight of their humanity as individuals. The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspired legions of Americans, but to those who knew her, she was also a caring friend.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg first came into focus for me in 1993, when she was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. She was a trailblazer, like my mom, and they were friends. In 1956, Mom was Jinnie Lyn Davis. Jinnie and Ruthie were the only two women in their section that first year of law school.

I never met Justice Ginsburg. But this summer, in a Slate interview about the 10 other women in her Harvard Law class, Justice Ginsburg singled out Jinnie as her closest classmate. I was so moved that I wrote a letter thanking her for remembering my mom so fondly.

Justice Ginsburg graciously wrote me back in August.

“Dear Kendra,” she wrote. “Your mother was the only other woman in my [first-year] section. We were good friends in law school, and remained occasionally in touch in the ensuing years. She cared about the right things and was brave as can be.”

I never experienced sitting next to Justice Ginsburg in a lecture hall full of men. But as I read that, it was as though I could feel her hand on my shoulder.

The Breaking Dawn with Laura Moliter

e-inspire, September 21st, 2020

by Laura Moliter

 

“And now consider this. You know well the times you are living in. It is time for you to wake up and see what is right before your eyes: for salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The darkness of night is dissolving as dawn’s light draws near, so walk out on your old dark life and put on the armor of light.” 
(Romans 13: 11-12, The Voice Translation)

 

 

The darkness may feel heavy and perpetual. It may seem like we are living in times of doubt, fear, and limitation. But we can wake up to what is really going on. We can look up from the anxiety and negativity and recognize a readiness. The dawn is near, for God’s spiritual reality, His goodness and Truth, are powerful and active.
It isn’t about waiting for circumstances to change. It is about walking away from that agreement to don the shroud and get used to its weight. It’s about shedding that dreary old habit of gloom and awaking to our true selves as children of light.
For this is who we are. We are those sons and daughters of God’s Love, His radiance, and His Life. We know the times we are living in, and what do these times need? They need us! They need the light, and we can usher it in with our trust, our gratitude, our hope, our joy. We can see the glimmer of God’s grace and stand at the ready to bask in the full sunshine of His goodness. For salvation isn’t a distant possibility. It is the dawn already breaking, the Love already in our hearts to be felt and shared!

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Fierce women’s advocate, and icon in her own right

Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, was a fierce advocate for the equal treatment of women in every aspect of life.

There is truth in the caricature. Justice Ginsburg’s dissents could flick like switchblades. As a young attorney arguing a case before the Supreme Court, she told justices that she asked for no favor for her sex – only that men “take their feet off our necks,” quoting abolitionist Sarah Grimké

“Our nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. said in a statement. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her – a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Petite and soft-spoken in person while steely and passionate on the page, it is not an overstatement to say Justice Ginsburg was one of the most significant legal minds of modern American history.

“There are only a few modern justices who would been significant figures in American law even if they had never served on the Supreme Court,” said Richard Primus, a professor at the University of Michigan Law School and a former Ginsburg clerk, in an email to the Monitor. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one.”

Peace Be Still

 

From a letter dated 1895

From the July 25, 1936 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


May the light of Divine love so illumine your mind that you behold yourself in His likeness, even as you are,—the image of perfect Mind. Thus will you find all power, wisdom, and peace in goodness, and demonstrate the grace of Spirit as ever sufficient to help you in every time of need.

 

 

Forrest Gump (6/9) Movie CLIP – Lt. Dan Makes His Peace (1994) HD

 

He finally realized how precious life is and that every life has meaning, no matter their situation.
***
I think the scene was symbolic of a baptism. Washing away the old pains and hatreds of the past. … He screams at the storm and breaks down. There seems to be an ongoing theme. People loosing their way find God, but fight him first, represented in a storm. In a storm there is lightning and thunder, the sound of anger like in an argument…but there is also water washing things away…and then peace.

***

I don’t think Lt Dan is just thanking him for saving his life on the battlefield. He’s thanking him for that but for also being there for him; for giving him a job on the shrimp boat and never, ever judging him. Which gave him both, a purpose again, and the environment he needed to come to terms with everything.
***
Lt. Dan going into the water is really a spiritual cleansing of sorts washing away all the sins of his past life as he starts a new one, in order to move on from the past he had to make his peace with God this is what this scene symbolizes.

Questions for God (Part 2) – Suicide Prevention

 

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, states: “The question is often asked, If God created only the good, whence comes the evil? To this question Christian Science replies: Evil never did exist as an entity. It is but a belief that there is an opposite intelligence to God”.

Mary Baker Eddy

(Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896p. 346).

History and divinity

Excerpt from the January 1995 issue of The Christian Science Journal

 

How can we learn to make sense of God in the mortal shadows of violence and revenge? Christ Jesus taught wholehearted love for God and the same for man. In fact, he encouraged those around him to love one another unconditionally.1 It must have been absolutely clear to Jesus that God was never cruel or vengeful, that He did not inflict disease and death upon His children, or even allow these to exist. If God had sent these evils to punish man, Jesus couldn’t have done anything about it, no matter how much he prayed and loved. Yet never has anyone shown more dominion over materiality—over disease, injury, and violence. His knowledge of God and of the kingdom of heaven, and his spiritual purity, gave him this dominion. And clearly, for Jesus, a knowledge of spiritual creation didn’t come from the examination of mortality.

Actually, for centuries, people have been reasoning wrongly about mortality and God. To try to deduce from the evidence of human events the true nature of divinity is precisely the methodological mistake that causes people to be so very disappointed in God. Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy comments on this blunder: “Spirit, Soul, is not confined in man, and is never in matter. We reason imperfectly from effect to cause, when we conclude that matter is the effect of Spirit; but a priori reasoning shows material existence to be enigmatical. Spirit gives the true mental idea. We cannot interpret Spirit, Mind, through matter.”2

Instead of asking “How could God allow this to happen?” we can be helped through prayer, step by step, to recognize scientifically that He hasn’t allowed and will never allow anything to exist but His faultless spiritual expression. A few years ago, I heard that one of my friends was ill, and when I went to visit him he was on the brink between life and death. I was shocked and stunned by what I saw; I just couldn’t understand it. When I got home I went humbly and mentally to my knees to pray about it. I remember being so ready to know more. I wanted to ask God to tell me the reason my friend was in this shape, and why in the world something like this could happen to him, of all people.

As I started to ask God this, something astounding happened. Before I could get the words out, it was as if I heard God say, “Uh, uh, uh” (the same way someone warns you before you do something wrong), “don’t believe this about him.” This pure, Christly message presented itself in the most loving way, and all of a sudden I knew confidently that what I had seen an hour or so before wasn’t at all true about my friend. I turned away from trying, through prayer, to reason from effect to cause, or in other words, from mortal man to God. Instead, all reasoning started from the basis of God and His manifestation—and stayed there. Through my prayer, God was helping me see that His spiritual creation is always perfect, and is actually safe and intact. With thought established on this line of reasoning, I felt that to believe anything else would be a disservice to my friend. He did recover from that illness, and to this day, even though I haven’t seen him in years, I am sure he is perfectly fine—because I know that he is always God’s reflection. This statement isn’t made lightly as a result of mere religious conviction. I came to know the truth. Listening to God, instead of reasoning from material evidence, made it clear.

We can behold for ourselves the power of Christ, Truth, to deprive the world of “power to harm” and to conquer it for us. We will do this as we reason scientifically and thereby keep clear for ourselves the truth of our permanent spiritual unity with God, divine Life. Events good or bad in this next century need not define God for us. Through prayer, through deep communion with our creator, we’ll let God define Himself— and see true progress for humanity.

Love above all

Excerpt below from the July 1, 2013 issue of the Christian Science Sentine

 

lf God is so good and all-powerful, how come the world is so evil?

 

Everyone confronts this question, or a variant of it, at some point. And everyone has his or her own response, including the apparently logical conclusion that there cannot be a God and the religious position that evil is allowed or even sent by God to test the faithful.

In the days, weeks, months, and years that followed, I realized that this moment was another of those humble, small beginnings essential to the spirituality taught in the Bible. The prophet Elijah, for example, famously did not find the Lord in the destructive power of earthquake, wind, and fire, but in a “still small voice” (see I Kings 19:11, 12)  …

Jesus did not arrive on the scene with an army of conquest. He apparently even let the bad guys win. At his crucifixion, he seemed to be the living proof that “bad things happen to good people.” Why? Because humanity needed tangible proof that Love never abandons anyone, even in death, even after death.

In a similar way, the “bad things” that happen in our lives can be overcome and healed by the quiet but true law of Love—even if our first steps in putting this truth into practice appear small. For example, when we begin to pray scientifically about personal difficulties of any nature—be they financial challenges, relationship problems, or even physical ailments—we may be tempted to feel that some resulting healings are “minor,” or that they might have happened anyway. Yet each of these “minor” victories over the self and adversity, like the unsteady, tumble-prone first steps of a child, gradually builds up into the ability to walk, run, leap, and even dance. These victories enable us to follow, in some measure, in the footsteps of Jesus, who healed terminal illnesses, overcame enraged crowds, and triumphed over death itself through quiet, powerful prayer.

Love is like that. It can easily look too small and insignificant to offer any answer to the big problems of existence. It does not always seem to have anything very clever to say. But without it, there is nothing. Love is everything.

Steadfast, Unrelenting Prayers & Renewal of Spirit with Virginia Harris, C.S.B.

 

Virginia Harris, C.S.B. – Renewal, not routine, impels progress

Posted: 09 Sep 2020 09:05 AM PDT

There was a September, almost 20 years ago, when the routines of end-of-summer, new school year, year-end business push and holiday planning had launched, per usual, in a typical burst of energy.

And then, on the morning of September 11, everything changed. All the plans, meetings, goals, expectations, everything was pushed aside for a greater consuming demand: steadfast prayers to the divine Parent – the loving Father-Mother God – to comfort, guide, and heal a hurting world.

Steadfast, unrelenting prayers had tangible effect: In the midst of terrible destruction, there was evidence of awe-inspiring selfless courage, strength, kindness, goodness, generosity, compassion, hope. From the smoke and rubble of devastation, there was a renewal of spirit, the real substance of humanity.

Every September, I pause to offer my prayers for those who gave their lives, and my gratitude for all who dedicated their lives to restore the well-being of their communities. With each prayer, I am reminded that renewal of spirit is a persistent demand.

And so it is this September, 2020. We may be familiar with the breakup of old routines by now, after six months of adjusting school, work and community demands due to the pandemic. But even more importantly, we should be familiar with and relying on the demand for steadfast prayers to God – to comfort, guide and heal – and expect to see the effect of our prayers. We should expect to experience renewal.

One month after the attack at the World Trade Center, a severely-damaged pear tree was discovered among the rubble. It was carefully removed with the hope that it could be saved. The next year, there was growth plus new leaves…and a bird’s nest snug in the tree branches. It was named “The Survivor Tree” and in 2010 it was returned to the 9/11 Memorial garden. This symbol stands and grows as a living witness to the inherent power of rebirth and renewal.

Response to previous post: “The Family Bond That Can’t Be Broken”

Below  is a message sent to me privately after my previous post on “The Family Bond That Can’t Be Broken” + Video.  I removed the name of the sender.  Perhaps the message is appropriate to the people in the CS movement who were against the above  article as stated by a  CS Board of Director at the time.

Most importantly, it impacts the healing of my relationship with my own family too.  Perhaps the life I am trying to save is my own and those who never had a voice, suffered in silence, or who we lost along the way to the human sense.

Even though a considerable amount of progress has been made,  I was asked if these anti gay messages are really still happening within the CS movement.  Yes, it happened with an anti-gay Bible scholar last year and the year before at Adventure Unlimited.

What’s the big deal???

Rob,
This video is powerful.   When I think about what you’re writing in connection to this video, the most impactful thing is the damaging — killing message of homophobia, especially when it comes out of a birth family or church family.  The man described in the video cared enough to save the life of another, but he could not save himself, the wound was too deep.
For that to happen in a family is awful, but when a church that claims to be loving and based in the word of God does that it’s even worse.  On the surface level — an important level — it’s awful because people who claim to be living a life of love are really living a life of hate, and — as you put it — their words have dire consequences.  On a deeper level, the impact of an institution like a church is much more powerful than any single family.  As a former Catholic, I am disgusted by the way the Catholic Church has reacted to priest sex abuse  — denial, no real sorrow about the thousands of victims.  Your church and those that preach conversion are doing the same thing.  They are destroying lives and showinno responsibility, none of the love they claim to have at their core.

Prevention & Intervention with The Christian Science Sentinel & Netflix’s The Kindness Diaries

I spent time working on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign at the end of 2015 to help pass the Equality Act which would prohibit discrimination in housing, education and employment against LGBT people in  states which currently have no protection. The Equality Act recently passed the House of Representatives.

“What is important to us? It’s the same things that are important to other Americans,” he adds. “That’s to not be [criminalized]; to have our families recognized; and to have jobs and not to be discriminated against.”  [https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2020/0616/Why-Gorsuch-upheld-civil-rights-for-LGBTQ-Americans]

A college student back in 2015 shared that he signed up as a member of HRC with me because he has two moms. I asked him how that impacted his life.  He replied that he is a well loved man and that is more than enough.

I was touched by one heart breaking story in particular. One woman shared that she had a friend whose son was gay. His family ostracized him for being gay so he left home with no further contact with them and perhaps felt pressured to leave his faith behind too. He died at age 26 from AIDS.  Perhaps the real tragedy is that he died of famished affections due to a lack of love and acceptance from his family and church.

But this same women, a mother,  also told me she has a gay son but loves him unconditionally. Their family welcomes him and stated God loves him unconditionally regardless of who he loves. As a result, he is now happy, healthy and well adjusted which demonstrates that love is the cure as stated by Sir Elton John.

 

PREVENTION:  Starts In Families: LGBTQ youth whose families are more supportive have significantly lower rates of depression, substance abuse and suicidal ideation and attempts. It is important for federal, state, local, community and faith-based programs to support families of LBGTQ youth, such as through parenting skills-building, case management services, professional best practices in the justice and healthcare systems, and promotion of positive role models. if we do a better job of providing a supportive and respectful environment early in life, we could help reduce the risk of HIV/AIDS and assure a higher quality of life for the next generation of LGBTQ Americans.

 

 

Video Above – As a child, Trevor’s hero was thrown away by parents who chose judgement and hate over love.  As an adult, Trevor’s hero saved the lives of others but couldn’t save himself.  Imagine how many lives could be saved if  all our young heroes are loved.

 

The family bond that cannot be broken

From the July 10, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In our heart of hearts, none of us wants our family ties to be broken.

That stands to reason, because we each have a spiritual sense within us—a capacity to see beyond the many material details of our lives, to what God knows. And with this spiritual sense we can perceive one universal family we each belong to. In this family the ties that bind are never torn apart by grief, nor severed by any geographical or emotional parting of the ways. In this family, Spirit, God, is the perfect, divine Parent—our divine Father-Mother—and we are all His solely spiritual offspring, bonded together in an unbreakable spiritual unity.

In best-case scenarios we gratefully see this ideal family reflected in human families formed of mutual fondness, compassion, kindness, and belonging.

Sadly, this isn’t always how human relationships play out, either within the global family of mankind or within our own families.

Just over a year ago, a shooter opened fire on a crowd in an Orlando, Florida, club predominantly frequented by the LGBT community. Dozens of innocent lives were lost, and families and friends were left grieving. In the wake of such targeted hatred, I immediately reached out to people dear to me who openly identify themselves as gay—including a fellow church member, my brother, and his marriage partner—to express love and care for them.

On the 24-hour news cycle, talking heads mainly focused on the big-picture tragedy. But one lone voice particularly moved me. In a missive addressed to the killer, author K. G. MacGregor pinpointed what she called the real fear faced by LGBT people in everyday life, a fear which would strike a chord with anyone who has ever dreaded, or experienced, broken family ties.

What if we were to see every individual as our divine Parent’s son or daughter, and just love them?

“Real fear [is] being unloved. By our parents, our siblings. By our extended families and dearest friends. By our schools, churches, workplaces and communities. There’s nothing you can ever do to us that scares us more than the thought of losing love,” she wrote.

In the spiritual understanding of Christian Science, fear is ultimately never real in the light of divine Love’s allness. And the truly satisfying and enduring spiritual love that reflects this divine Love, and which makes up our true identity as God’s children, can never be lost. But as I read MacGregor’s words, I put myself in the shoes of those who had found themselves “unloved” by those they’d grown up with or grown close to—or by those at church they had grown into fellowship with. And I yearned to see all such loss of familial affection become a thing of the past.

At their best, family members love one another impartially. Such love can not only safeguard a family member going through a potentially vulnerable period in his or her life, but can also safeguard every other family member’s connection to a son, daughter, sister, brother, nephew, or niece, whose love they should never be deprived of.

And when this impartial love is founded on God’s love—by which we love man as the pure image of divine Love itself—it does more than tolerate differences. Such love lifts the atmosphere of thought to that place where those we relate to genuinely feel loved, whatever differences we might feel we have. And loving our kith and kin no matter where they might be in their individual demonstration of spiritual growth fulfills our obligation to support them in moving forward morally and spiritually, just as we would want to be supported in our own efforts to do so.

Such empowering love is best seen in the spirituality Christ Jesus exemplified, which enabled individuals to feel both the love of God that heals broken minds and bodies and the power of Truth that transforms character. The Christ, the voice of the true Mind, God, so clearly perceived in Jesus’ love for all, shines a light on what we all spiritually are as objects of God’s never-ending affection. To affirm this understandingly is prayer that brings out an affection within us that unreservedly expresses Love’s care.

For instance, I recently talked with a Christian Scientist who had met and married a man whose adult daughter was the first openly gay person this Christian Scientist had ever known. I asked, “So how did you respond when finding this out about your daughter-to-be?” She simply said, “Well, I just loved her.”

As her husband’s daughter, and as God’s daughter, she has loved this young woman for over a decade now. She and her husband regularly voice that love, and express it in tangible ways, to both the daughter and her partner.

What if we were to see every individual as our divine Parent’s son or daughter, and just love them? Isn’t our willingness to see the unbreakable bond between the divine Mind and all its ideas the right starting point for guiding all our relationships?

By contrast, it’s the carnal mind—the opposite, material belief of man as separate from God—that tears families apart. This false mentality is pictured in the Scriptures as a talking serpent tempting us to act and react based on a false, fleeting sense of man as matter-defined rather than Spirit-created. But we don’t need to listen to the whispers of this serpent. People, in good faith, wrestle with the Scriptures and sincerely arrive at contrasting conclusions about what particular Bible passages teach. But can’t we all unite in praying to support families being havens of love, where we’re all wholeheartedly valued and welcomed, while also being seen beyond every temporal label as the loved, divine idea of God we each actually are?

And if that doesn’t happen? A Bible promise says, “God setteth the solitary in families” (Psalms 68:6). So in cases where families haven’t been the havens we would wish, we can pray to know, as Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures says, “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 494). This applies wherever we are on our journey of understanding and proving the purely spiritual identity that ultimately defines us all. As loved sons and daughters of the Divine, we each have a forever fixed place within our divine family whose bonds have never been broken, and cannot be broken. These forever family bonds include each and every one of us equally, in unbroken unity with the Love that Mrs. Eddy describes as “man’s only real relative on earth and in heaven” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 151), our Father-Mother God.
