Coming from Behind Our Mask
Based on Matthew 10:26-28 (The Message)
Slowly, we are being told, we can begin to come out once again. Go to the store, the barber – even eat in a restaurant.
Quickly, with urgency, we are told, we must speak out for our black brothers and sisters, for persons of color. Demand that police violence end, that black lives be cherished, and honored.
Clearly, in our text from Matthew we are being told, everything is going to come out in the open. Do not be swayed by bullies, or fear.
God be with us! Time for the masks to come off. Time to go public!
