This morning’s sermon was challenging, I know. I’m grateful to serve a congregation where the minister can offer a challenging sermon and be thanked. Several congregants told me I gave them a lot to think about, which is all I hope for from a sermon.
This morning I encouraged congregants to read a recent New York Times opinion piece by George Yancy called “Dear White America.” There are over 2000 comments to this letter.
I also talked about Robin DiAngelo’s article on “White Fragility.”
And here is Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” most of it as relevant today as when he wrote it in 1963.
