Combating Racism

Along with many Americans, we are outraged at the needless death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis last week.
*
How can this kind of senseless injustice still be happening to our brothers and sisters in the 21st century? It’s disgraceful how racism, bigotry, and hate still live in the hearts of some in our culture.

But do not forget, there is a greater force at work in the world, and it’s the LOVE of God, through, us, his people.
