What are two practical things I can do this week to respond to racial injustice? What if in trying to say something welcoming I instead commit a microaggression? Do people have to experience vulnerability before they will care about social justice?
These are three of the great questions about justice that I received in the webinar series with Everybody’s Church (First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, MI) earlier this week. It was an honor to offer my own thoughts about how to use our heads, hearts, and hands to participate in the work of healing.
It was even more encouraging to know that they have met regularly in small groups to read and discuss White Picket Fences and what they can do to respond in their own local communities. Thank you, Everybody’s Church, for having me!
