Nunc dimittis

Krister Stendahl has died.

A creative, visionary thinker and leader, a boldly spiritual, yet humble man--he was a bridge builder. He will be missed by a church and a world dearly in need of voices which remind us to look over the walls we erect around ourselves and our traditions.

Thanks for the boost, Brother Stendahl. Requesciat in pace.
