[Jesus] got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. - Mark 4:39 (NIV)
I was having a rough morning. I hadn’t slept well, and I was worried. Family members were struggling with health issues. A valued employee had resigned. I was trying to meet project deadlines. As I stood making small talk during the coffee hour at church, my mind was filled with...

The role of the prophet is twofold; one, to speak with power and secondly to speak to power. This work on anti-racism does both of those things. The videos, writings and resources are powerful representations of what grace and justice sound like and the orators and writers who approach this work do so with a conviction deeply rooted in gospel. These women and men help us reimagine a prophetic voice in a time such as this. This work is needed.”
