Missouri & Yale & the gaps in our Gospel.

Members of the student protest group Concerned Student 1950 hold hands following the announcement that University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe would resign.

I’m reading the reports from Missouri and Yale and thinking about the gaps in our Gospel. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. (Matthew 23:23) Woe to those who […]

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. Worlds are colliding. I keep hearing […]
