How Do We Respond to Racism Amid a Pandemic?

There is a time to dance and there is a time to mourn. Today we mourn. In the fifth of the Church’s six “Great Ends,” Presbyterians affirm that one of the our core callings is “the promotion of social righteousness.” (Book of Order F-1.0304) Not just “proclamation,” but “promotion.” In this week’s meditation, A Time to Mourn, Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge discusses the movement from mourning to active promotion of social righteousness.
