So I picked up the winter 2011 issue of The Crisis, which is the magazine of the NAACP off of my messy desk and was skimming through it. And I came to this page, and it seemed like a very good and very direct question. Did you go to church today?
The church remains one of the few places where people come together on a face-to-face basis to reflect on their life, resolve to do good, seek divine help, and work together for a positive community. There is power in worshipping together.
And since the days of Micah, the Prophet of Hebrew Scriptures, justice has been a topic of concern. “What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.”
Gathering with family, friends and neighbors is a powerful step toward community and justice.
