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 could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
