Ella's song was created by Bernice Johnson REagan, Sweet Honey in the Rock. We sang out this morning in church to remember that Black Lives Matter and also, Brown Lives and all those who are persecuted because of race, class, gender, sexual orientation and immigration status. Today's sermon was powerful and prophetic based on the parable from Luke 8 of the "importuning woman" who demanded justice from an unjust judge. As our preacher, Rev. Susan Shaw, reminded us, "faith looks like demands, not just forgiveness." And she added, the "call of the gospel is to disrupt the status quo!"
My life has been about crossing borders and cultures and building bridges across the boundaries that normally divide. Have you crossed any borders in your life?
