In light of recent events, it is very clear that we are not “fine.”
There is deep brokenness, naivety, disunity, and injustice in our country and in our city.
I feel this desperate need to just do something. I’ve prayed, talked, read and repeated the process over and over again.
I know that because of my ethnicity, most of what is happening in our country is nearly impossible for me to comprehend.
I am trying to listen to stories and tell stories over and over again because the problems in our world are so much more human than they are political.
I pray that we will see people before statistics,
beating hearts before policies,
and that we will use compassion before judgement.
I don't know what exactly this will look like. However, I hope that through stories, we will see the complexity of issues that may seem far removed from our everyday lives. I hope that we will begin to think before we judge. I hope that we will show grace to ourselves and others as we seek to learn how others feel.
