Yesterday I was proud of my largely white evangelical church. My pastor took time to condemn the racists who came to Charlottesville on Saturday and reminded us that “God grieves” at such behavior. He asked us to pray for the victims and their families. He asked us to pray for changed hearts among the white nationalists and repent of our own sins of racism. He read from Ephesians 2.
Did your church acknowledge what happened in Charlottesville yesterday? If it did, I would love to hear about it. Feel free to comment below, at Facebook, or at Twitter.
Emma Green has a nice piece at The Atlantic on how some churches have responded.
