Philip asked the Ethiopian eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” - Acts 8:30 (NIV)
In 1965, I was in a special reading class to develop my comprehension skills. When I walked into the class on the first day, my immediate thought was, I'm stupid, because I would be sitting at a table with other people my peers had called “stupid.”
Acts 8:30-31 reminds me...
Wisdom is a fountain oflife to one who has it(Prov. 16:22, nrsv).

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.”
