If you want a break, you can’t have it. If you want to deny that there are broken systems at play that favor some over others, you cannot do that any more. If you want to catch a breath, you’re reminded that Eric Garner said, “I can’t breathe.”
This continues to be a movement and our churches must not be silent. I’m collecting sermons, blog posts, reflections and articles from Christian circles as we continue to address systemic racism and social bias that frames our lives. I hope that these will continue to be nourishment for the journey ahead.
