You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. - Psalm 139:13 (NIV)
At two weeks old, my daughter, Rebecca, had open-heart surgery to repair a rare congenital defect. For the next two months, she fought for her life. Every day was a struggle. During that time, I learned to rely on God for both my strength and my daughter’s health.
Today I will ask God to be my strength.

Our resolve must be different. My prayer is that we have finally reached a tipping point. My hope is that when the protests fade and the marches slow that our will as a church to truly eradicate the scourge of racism won’t dissipate but grows even stronger.”
