Thoughts and Prayers

Thoughts and Prayers

“When our still speaking God said ‘let justice flow like a river, and righteousness flow like an unfailing stream,’ They weren’t talking about the justice that comes from a bullet or the false righteousness of empty thoughts and prayers. God calls us to action. God pleads for us to do better; to hold our leaders accountable, to stand up for laws that protect all of God’s children, to beat our swords into plows.”

Hungry for Justice

Hungry for Justice

“I feel like we’re wandering in the wilderness. Even though we’re surrounded by all the comforts of life, nothing feels comfortable. Nothing feels right . Nothing feels safe. Even though I’ve had more than enough of my share of food, I’m hungry: Hungry for God’s word, hungry for God’s love, hungry for God’s justice in a world that is hurting so badly.”
