You HAVE GOT TO READ the powerful story of why this man in his underwear is hugging us! It’s one of the most powerful experiences I’ve encountered in a long time. Thanks to Nathan Albert, Director of Pastoral Care for The Marin Foundation, who chronicled this on his blog.
Here is the picture of the same guy who just jumped off his float, sprinting towards when he realized what we’re sorry for to give us his hugs and tears! Wow…
UPDATE: The man in his underwear is named Tristan, and he commented on Nathan’s blog! He said:
“Thank you so much for kind words and beautiful actions. I am Tristan (the man in the underwear). You are a breath of fresh air in this world. With so much hate and intolerance around us it is amazing to open your mind and heart in such a loving way. Again thank you and this was an amazing read and something I will never forget!”
There were 20 of us. Gay and straight. Black and white. Male and female and transgender. Christian and non-Christian. Old and young. Parents and children and siblings and friends and co-workers. No matter what, we all had one thing in common: Humility.
Please click on the link above to read Nathan’s account of this life changing moment for all of us.
It’s crazy what’s happening through this…
