Knocking on heaven's door
Ralph Wynder, leader of the 38th Democratic Ward, declined a nomination last week for another term, stepping down after 18 years to move in what he called a more "spiritual direction."
Wynder, who said he hopes to be baptized next year as a Jehovah's Witness, has been contemplating an end to his political career almost since the last time he was nominated as ward leader four years ago.
"They kind of remain neutral on politics," Wynder said of the Jehovah's Witnesses. "They believe not so much in the kingdom of man as in the kingdom of God."
Wynder spent a lot of time knocking on neighborhood doors in his four decades as a community activist. He let out a good laugh when we noted that Jehovah's Witnesses are well-known for knocking on doors to spread the word about their religion.
