#WalterScott

images-2

Walter Scott, an unarmed black man, was shot dead by a police officer this week, and I’m still chewing on what this means to us. 1. Can’t shake these words: Cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression. (Isaiah 1:16-17) Perhaps it requires humility to recognize that justice is learned. Let’s learn. 2.
