Praying for all US church leaders this week. Praying for courage and words that reflect the truth of Christ.
What is said and not said from pulpits this Sunday in the US is drastically important, and will have an immense influence on the safety and well-being of millions, and the general framework or lens through which many folks will choose to understand what is happening from here on out–including who is or isn’t their “enemy”.
Also this Sunday’s sermons will be listened t…o and watched closely by millions who aren’t normally interested–wanting to know if the church and American Christians are “for or against” bigotry, violence, sexism, anti-immigrant ideology, white supremacy, patriarchy, protecting the earth, and extreme nationalism.
Like it or not.
And rightfully so.
