Over the past couple of days, my heart has been heavy & burdened over the riots in Charlottesville. As I processed the horrific details, I've struggled to find words. But just because I can't speak as eloquently about this topic as I'd like, doesn't mean I will stand silent. It's crucial for us all to speak up against, call out & condemn racism, hate & evil. We must boldly stand with our brothers & sisters of color, spread the love of Jesus through the way we live our lives & teach our children the beauty of diversity.
Today in church our pastor did a great job of reminding us that in times of hell on earth, we as Christians are called to carry the hope of Jesus into the chaos. My little family & I choose to continue to spread hope & love in this broken world. We pledge to listen, learn + do our part to end injustice, treat those different than us with love, respect + dignity & shine the light of Christ in dark places.
