"Baltimore Fires, Pentecost and You"

May 3, 2015 

Chanting on the streets of Baltimore, protesters declared in unison:  “No justice, no peace!”  “Justice.  Freddie Gray!” “I love Baltimore. We want peace!”  “Black lives matter!”  They are protesting because Freddie Gray, a 25-year old black man died one week after being taken into police custody for looking a police officer in the eye and running away. His spine was 80% severed and his larynx was crushed. 

We have watched fires erupt throughout Baltimore and protests sparked in Boston, Chicago, and Philadelphia, demanding accountability from law enforcement and challenging police violence particularly, though not only, against African Americans.

 

Lest we fall into a sense of cynicism, powerlessness, or indifference, or become too distracted and numbed by social media, television or other forms of entertainment to consider our own agency, I challenge you to ask yourself the question: What can I do?  As people of faith, concerned about the welfare of communities, what can we do?
