We must not let fear become a way of life. We remember the words of Jesus: Love can cast out fear.

How is our deep and shameful inequality in America at play as the threat of the new coronavirus rises?

"First and foremost, we stand with the women today. Jean’s actions are inexcusable," Tina Bovermann, head of L’Arche USA, said.

I am asking God to help us stop the overt white nationalism and turn us in a new, redemptive direction.

Lent. 2020. The upcoming liturgical season and this momentous political year. How do these two things connect?

Let me be clear: If most white Christians support or ignore the dangerous American brand of white nationalism we see rising again, we will lose the authenticity of our faith.

Frighteningly, there’s nothing to suggest that the whole cycle won’t repeat itself.

The words of Jesus must now be taken seriously, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”

Keeping the peace under an oppressive status quo and accepting things as they are isn’t truly peace.

The task for followers of Jesus is to respect the role of what government is supposed to be but make clear where our loyalties lie.
