"The Choice Is Ours! The Time Is Now!" 
 
"Perhaps you have come to royal dignity for just such a time as this."

October 5, 2014

 

At our outdoor Worship Without Walls service last month, I shared with the church and community gathered that the murder of Michael Brown has been impactful for me and for many.  It has not only been disheartening to see that an unarmed black man, with his arms held up in surrender can be shot dead by police in 2014, but it has also been deeply frustrating to see the response of the police to the protests and the increasing militarization of local police departments.  Too often we see those who have been called to “protect and serve” enter into a combative relationship with communities.  At points of crisis, our collective frustration with systems that negatively impact our communities can lead us in two different directions – we can choose flight or we can choose to fight.  We can choose to be salt and light and transform these systems and institutions, or we can let them continue to perpetuate.  The choice is ours and the time is now!
