We are at a critical time in our nation. It has been set ablaze, sparked by the murder of unarmed Black women and men at the hands of the police. The murder of George Floyd on Memorial Day followed by rulings of officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s shooting have created a sustained national outcry. This has brought attention to the systemic injustices faced by those on the margins—particularly, Black people in America. This national outcry raises awareness of the history and legacy of racism and invites us as God’s Beloved Community to Rise to the Moment.
The goal of this project is to equip followers of Christ to Rise to the Moment by beginning to 1) deconstruct anti-Black narratives, 2) understand the impact of controlling narratives 3) process the ways we have internalized these narratives and have contributed to oppression, and 4) create space to begin the journey towards racial justice and healing. This is an ongoing journey, and we recognize that no project can erase 400+ years of systemic oppression. This requires that we not only Rise to the Moment but also continue the ongoing journey and mission to join together, worship God, and love our neighbors.

It's good to remember that in crises,
human beings forget for awhile
Neighbors help neighbors
