Lenten Reflection: Saturday in the Fourth Week of Lent

"Racist” is not… a pejorative. It is not the worst word in the English language; it is not the equivalent of a slur. It is descriptive, and the only way to undo racism is to constantly identify and describe it – and then dismantle it. The attempt to turn this usefully descriptive term into an almost unusable slur is, of course, designed to do the opposite: to freeze us into inaction.

-Ibram X. Kendi, Author, How to be an Antiracist

“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced. ”

-James Baldwin


Jesus said, “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. (Luke 8:16-17)

Where do you feel called to shine a light for greater understanding? How will you do that?
