He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. - Psalm 121:4-5 (NRSV)
Our plane was gliding over patches of clouds. After a
little while, the crew announced that because of weather, the flight might be bumpy, but there was no reason to panic. However, I had never been so scared during a flight. I leaned back and closed my eyes.
Even when the path seems unclear, God faithfully leads us forward.

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.”
