but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?

  1. I am glad to see that this blog has been created. This will be a great way to discuss this important topic.


  2. President Obama had important words to say about racism in his farewell message on Tuesday, January 10.
    “. . .if we’re going to be serious about race going forward, we need to uphold laws against discrimination — in hiring, and in housing, and in education, and in the criminal justice system.

But if our democracy is to work the way it should in this increasingly diverse nation, then each one of us need to try to heed the advice of a great character in American fiction, Atticus Finch, who said “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

    What can we do to help one another change our hearts?
