IN MEMORIAM: Margo Santoni (1932-2017)
By Eduard Loring, Hospitality Newspaper of the Open Door Community

A long time ago now, I was invited to Denison University to be the Religious Emphasis Week speaker. This event turned me toward a deeper formation of love and commitment. I am thankful. I met and continue to have a friendship with Dr. David Woodyard, head of the Religion Department and close friend of James Cone and Rev. Ashley Goff of D.C. I will be reviewing Dr. Woodyard’s latest book, Liberating Privilege, in these pages in the future.

I had heard of George and Carolyn Williamson, but had not met them. In their home one evening, we became companions on the journey. So much love and grace, and then Margo and Ron Santoni put an indelible mark upon my soul, Murphy’s soul and the faith and prac- tices of the Open Door Community.
