Lucius Walker: Presente!

The Reverend Lucius Walker has passed. There are many things that can be said of Lucius, his life, his work, and those of us who knew him and loved him, but none of them says it better to me than this: Presente. He was present, always, front and center, a gift to all of us even if we did not always recognize it.

I only knew him through you and Jane. What a shame! Didn't you go to hear him in NYC?

Yes, we spent a day with him at his headquarters in Harlem one year, and then visited him at his church in Brooklyn another year. He took us to this great little cafeteria in Harlem where they had the best fried chicken and other southern comfort foods.
