Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. - Galatians 6:9 (NRSV)
The email stung. Magazine editors had rejected my devotional submission. I had put a lot of time and thought into that piece, and I believed in my words. I tried to imagine the editor’s viewpoint and to sense the challenging decisions they make each day reading endless submissions.
Rejection is an opportunity to rebuild my trust in God.

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.”
