Meditation for Easter Sunday
In preparing for this reflection, I realized that I did not really know very much about MCC's first Easter.
So, I went to the source. Rev. Elder Troy Perry was happy to tell me what he remembered. That Friday, Good Friday, in 1969 was the inquest about the death of Howard Efland, a gay male nurse beaten to death by Los Angeles (California, USA) vice squad officers. He had been heard screaming, "Help me! My God, someone help me!" But no one did.
