The Riggio-

The Riggio-Lynch Interfaith Chapel, designed by internationally renowned architect Maya Lin, is located at the Children’s Defense Fund’s 157-acre Haley Farm in Clinton, Tennessee. "The chapel’s ark-inspired design," said Lin, who also planned the farm’s Langston Hughes Library, "supports the CDF mission and its Freedom Schools program to carry the nation’s family of children to safe harbor. Architecturally, my goal was to quietly raise people’s hope and elevate their spirits through beautiful surroundings and, in turn, to demonstrate that they are valued."

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
