Clearly, some lives in our nation do not matter as much as others. Those who have benefitted from this system have a special duty to help change it, to speak out and act up when they see racial bias and to stand with people of color to create a world that is fairer and more just for all. The assurance of salvation is not an excuse to choose ignorance, blindness or lethargy in the face of injustice.
Please pray for the new Women of the ELCA executive board as they meet today through Saturday evening. This message is adapted from the Bible study “All anew: ready or not” by Kelly Fryer, in the July/August 2017 issue of Gather magazine.
