A Time to be Born, and a Time to Die

I quote Ecclesiastes above because of the following article/essay in the Washington Post yesterday and today: do special interest groups always need to exist into perpetuity? In particular, James Kirchick was writing about LGBTQ groups.

To quote Ecclesiastes: there is a time to be born, and a time to die. a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted (3:2, 3).

In other words, there is a time to build an organization to address an injustice in the world, and once that injustice has been met and the cause just, then there is a time to dismantle the organization.

Besides, there are lots of causes to get involved in where oppression rules.



Homelessness (a group of homeless men have taken up near my building of the School of the Pilgrim)?


Health care crisis?
