These are all good informative articles. Please read them and also think about how we can better speak with truth and grace.
As my friend John posted, “There are things in life that are reprehensible to say and think. Being part of a certain culture or generation doesn’t get you out of that.
Everyday we need to ask ourselves how we are siding with the oppressed and marginalized in our words and actions. When people tell us that we’re being bigoted, racist, oppressive, what-have-you, that’s not the time to stand our ground. That’s the time to listen and hope to understand.”
