I am also reminding you that the Black Lives Matter Ministry Action team does not say that black lives matter more than your life. We are not saying that there is only so much love and justice to go around. We ARE saying that until black people know justice, no one will know justice. To borrow from our Universalist ancestors, none are saved until all are saved.
We aren’t there yet. We aren’t where we deserve to be. We aren’t yet living in the world we were promised at our birth, but we will get there. Each day we meet fear and anger with love we bend the arc a little closer to justice.
