Rev. William Barber: “When people place their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the Constitution and then engage in public policy that denies...people health care and punishes the poor … we need to critique that in an independent way, saying, that’s not Democrat, that’s not Republican, that’s immoral.”
Rebecca Solnit: “This is an extraordinary time full of vital, transformative movements that could not be foreseen. It’s also a nightmarish time. Full engagement requires the ability to perceive both.”
Rev. William Barber: “In my heart, I am troubled, and I am worried by the way faith is cynically used by some to serve hate, fear, racism and greed … And when religion is used to camouflage meanness, we know that we have a heart problem in America.”
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
