“Poetry Service 2016”
Bruce Martin, Worship Leader; Larry LaVerdure, Worship Associate
In the face of ongoing racial strife, we’ve chosen “Racial Justice (or its ugly cousin, Racial Injustice)” as our theme for the annual poetry service. Today’s service seeks to be in conversation on the generational work needed to heal the “collective white soul” and end the violence visited on people of color. Which Side is the Side of Love?

This Sunday’s Half-Plate: Black Lives Matter 5280 assists in building more loving and united Black communities while eliminating anti-Black violence and racism. Black Lives Matter 5280 uses a holistic racial justice approach to expose, address, and eradicate structures and systems of oppression while strengthening individual and community health and wellness. As part of the national movement, BLM 5280 embodies the declaration that Black Lives Matter. Nominated by Katy Wiley.
