Both Church Phone Lines are Down

This morning, we had trouble with the phone line we use to broadcast live to 1560 A.M. On a hunch, I tried calling the main line as well and it also isn’t working. We’ll call this outage in tomorrow morning. I don’t know how long it will take to get the phones back up and running but you can call Jenny and I on our mobile phones if you need anything in the meantime.

Racism is Alive and Well

Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, was shot and killed while out for a run in Georgia on February 23, 2020. It took 74 days, a damning video, and a national outcry for the two white men chased him down in a truck to be arrested. This is still further evidence that racism, both individual and systemic, is alive well in the United States of America. It is not enough to change hearts and minds; the whole systematic edifice of racial prejudice must be dismantled. Racism is sinful. Racism is evil. And so God calls the church to oppose it.

I’m overwhelmed, and I’m not sure how to respond, and so I’m going to pray. I would ask and encourage you to pray also. Pray for Ahmaud’s family, pray for his friends, pray for the heart and soul of this country, that we might repent, individually and collectively, of our racism and then go forth to sin no more.
