Thoughts about Racism - Day V

This week I will be thinking about Racism through the lens of William Stringfellow and his words, ending each day with a prayer.

What is the power of death?

"There is a legitimate problem centered around black men (and other people of color) being gunned down by police officers prior to any opportunity for due process and the judicial system to do its work, and then those police officers walking away with no consequences." 
O HOLY GOD, you love righteousness and hate iniquity: Strengthen, we pray, the hands of all who strive for justice throughout the world, and, seeing that all human beings are your offspring, move us to share the pain of those who are oppressed, and to promote the dignity and freedom of every person; through Jesus Christ the Liberator, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
