Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

God, today I will take some quiet time to open my ears to Your plan for me. Amen

Today we wrap up Social Justice Awareness Week. After first hour, we will hear from Chris Crass – a longtime educator, and writer – who has written and spoken widely about anti-racist organizing, leadership to build visionary movements, and creating healthy culture for progressive activism.  His talk will raise our awareness of injustice as a foundation to lift our spirits and aspire for social justice as a life-affirming, socially responsible, courageous pursuit.
