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.

"I've got a lot of experience going into what I'll be doing," Wynder

told us. "I think this is just work on a higher level."
