Dear friends in Christ,

Our country finds itself in a time of exceptional conflict and turmoil, a situation which leaders, both civic and religious, are called to address with wisdom, compassion and integrity. To clear peaceful protestors with tear gas and rubber bullets is a misuse of power and shows disregard for the liberties this country affords its people. Further, to take these violent actions against citizens for a photo opportunity in front of a church with a bible is not only outrageous, it is insensitive and deceptive. We need moral leadership that inspires unity and justice for all God’s children, now more than ever.President Trump’s actions yesterday were a mockery in direct defiance of God’s boundless love that the very Holy Bible he was holding embodies. We cannot allow this mockery into our hearts nor let it fuel hatred. Instead, we are called to do as Jesus did: focus on all those who need our help and our care and our compassion. Let us lift up the voices of our black and brown siblings so they may be heard, and let us learn how white members of our church can create safe spaces for the lives, voices and souls of our siblings of color.
