At the beginning of the 1900’s, Charles Evans Hughes was a prominent figure in Washington and nationally. He was narrowly defeated by Woodrow Wilson for the presidency in 1916, and later he was named chief justice of the Supreme Court. When he came to live in Washington, he became a member of a large church there. On the same day that he came forward to identify himself with the church, two others also came. One was a Chinese student and the other was a washerwoman. The minister might have made quite a thing of Hughes’ becoming a member, but he chose to do otherwise. After he had announced the names of the new members, he said, “Friends, I hope you will notice that at the cross of Christ the ground is level. All are equal.”
