The Rally to End Racism: From South Carolina to Washington, D.C.

Jesus tells us “And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34) When I saw Bishop Yoos’ invitation to join him on a trip to Washington, DC to participate in the Rally to End Racism, my answer was yes, I must do this. I must show that God’s love is stronger than racism.

Made in the image of God, we are called to continue what God is already doing for the earth (Psalm 104), enabling it to flourish. God assigns humans to care for the earth as God does, in loving servanthood. (Philippians 2:7, Genesis 2:15).
