If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. - Mark 9:43 (NIV)
There are over 60 languages spoken in my neighborhood, making it one of the most diverse communities in the world. But the beauty of our
diversity is tainted by a
long history of discri-mination. Tensions are
particularly high between our mostly white police force and our African and African-American populations.
God’s transforming grace is always available to me.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
