Variations on 2 Fish and 5 Loaves: MLK 50 Years Later

Back up in the DC area, I put together a little Jewish dish for the Quakers, kind of wondering about the 2 fish and 5 loaves event as I did it.

It’s served room temperature, and kind of like a bruschetta. Pretty tasty.

FCNL had an organizational voice in an event commemorating Martin Luther King’s speech “Beyond Vietnam“. It was the 50th anniversary of that speech and a bunch of us got together to listen to it, and participate in various workshops on poverty, Medicaid reform, police militarization, and race relations. The panel was quite illustrious Rev. Grimes (BLM activist and reconciliation), Sister Simone Campbell from Nuns on a Bus, International Religious Freedom Rabbi David Saperstein, Imam Talib Shareef, and some Buddhist monks who had walked all the way from Massachusetts with a sign saying “Sanctuary City”.

Later we marched over to the Whitehouse carrying our signs as the monks drummed and held a vigil.
