“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Pastor Bonhoeffer wrote this over 70 years ago and never has it meant more to people of faith, called to stand for Justice and Peace.
It is a sad day for our nation, that so many well-meaning citizens have set aside the values they claim for political expediency and hope for “change” It is my prayer and hope that I’m wrong about Mr. Trump and his administration, although, a few days after the election, I hear the same message I heard throughout the campaign; a message of misogamy, racism, xenophobia, fear, violence, and homophobia. There will certainly be change and the anticipation of living in Trump world causes me grave concerns for our nation and for the legacy my children and grandchildren will inherit.
Advocate, work, and pray for peace and justice.
