Missions Moment – Racial Justice

“Unprecedented times” – It’s a phrase none of us have heard or used as much in our entire lives as we have over the last three months. It was first used to describe the global coronavirus pandemic, but is now being used to describe the global outcry against racial injustice.

The center of this movement is in the United States. But there is a reason why protests, rallies and demands for change aren’t only happening in our country. It is a global outcry for two reasons:

  • Racial injustice is not only an American problem. It can be found everywhere.
  • In this case, a willingness to “make your problem my problem”.

Therefore, we are seeing a beautiful representation of scripture.

24 The parts that can be seen do not need as much care. God has made the body so more care is given to the parts that need it most. 25 This is so the body will not be divided into parts. All the parts care for each other. 26 If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it. If one part is given special care, the other parts are happy. 27 You are all a part of the body of Christ. (1 Cor. 12:24-27 – NLV)

Typically, when society is protesting an injustice, you will see rallies in big cities comprised mostly of those who are being oppressed. But in these “unprecedented times”, protests have been seen in all 50 states. They are happening in big cities, suburban areas, small towns and in countries around the world. In one weekend, rallies in support of the Black Lives Matter movement were seen in cities across Sweden, England, Japan, Brazil, Spain, Senegal, Denmark, Scotland, South Korea, Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Australia, Poland, Turkey, France, Kenya, Switzerland, Portugal, Canada, and Germany.

I need you and you need me—The Singing Company song “Body of Christ” reminds us:

To be the Body, to be the Body,
I need you and you need me—
There is one Spirit, there is one Spirit.

Though we’re different, I can see
We were made for unity.
When you suffer, I will grieve.
When you’re honored, I will sing:

So many parts so we don’t have to feel alone.
And every part is found in Christ to have a home.

We are all part of the body of Christ. “God has made the body so more care is given to the parts that need it most.”

We are called to grieve with our brothers and sisters who are suffering.

We are called to give care to the parts that need it most.

    Many individuals can be extremely active, at the same time they approach their golden years. Boating, skiing, and other activities do place you at the upper chances for being injured, but every day life is not intended as approached within an overly-cautious manner. Should you be considering a trip that features sports or activities which might be considered risky, many insurance agencies won’t cover you in case you’re injured while doing these kind of activities. Be prepared for your vacation by knowing what activities you will end up engaging in, and you may be covered however should happen.

    Thanks for your write-up on this site. From my own experience, there are times when softening upward a photograph could provide the photographer with a dose of an artsy flare. Oftentimes however, the soft blur isn’t what precisely you had at heart and can usually spoil a normally good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging the item.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
