No one is stopping the deaths. Yet, we must move from this place of violence against black and brown bodies to a place where the love of God is first seen, felt, and expressed when we encounter someone else.
Having served churches and, more importantly, having attended church for decades now, I can safely say that political engagement is one of the least understood subjects in all the church. It is either used by those who desire a triumphalistic return of Christendom or it is ignored altogether. Considering the harm we can cause others through our sloppy engagement in this realm I suggest a total moratorium on political sermons.
