Don’t abandon ship just because it gets taxing to initiate hard conversations. Or because you don’t feel like giving a history lesson today to a peer who’s not “woke”. Or because the ignorance you see spewed out from every side turns your stomach again & again. I️ get it. But justice, healing, solidarity, affirmation of God-given identity, & the type of unity that honors differences are all things that were God’s idea first. And He’s faithful to complete every good work that He begins. He’s capable. And willing. Let’s just agree with Him for something new to spring forth as we do the work. So we can see on earth as it is in heaven. #HereAsInHeaven _______________________________________________ “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”

True unity is possible. And it’s so much better than the fake, lesser kind we tend to settle for. The one that seeks to avoid the hard work of examining our hearts & having hard, truthful conversations. God calls us to seek the higher, better things that He’s made available to us. Let’s start seeking, y’all. I’ll go with you. _________________________________________ #floodlightinitiative #racialreconciliation #courageousconvo #courage #courageousconversation #equality #rezist #bethechange #makeyourownlane #race #blacklivesmatter #justice #whitealliesmatter #mythvstruth #privilege #conversation #resist #unity #unityindiversity #iamareconciler #buildingbridges #buildingrelationships #racialjustice #courageousconversations #youmakemebrave

For #indigenouspeoplesday, I want to honor the legacy of brother @richardtwiss in adding this overdue gem to the reading list. I met this giant literally the day before his passing, serving at the National Prayer Breakfast years ago. Even in 5-10 minutes in discussion, you wanted to hang onto every word he said... every bit of wisdom felt simple, concentrate, & life-affirming. He was a reconciler through & through, with such the heart of Jesus. He had such great vision for what God can do in & through relationship in community with inclusive perspective, truer narratives. And I was so struck by his courage to reflect the image of God the way he was actually created as an indigenous man of God—challenging the imposing narratives that would hope that he be something else. He was inspiring & his voice super liberating. And I’m so grateful for those 5-10 minutes. Hoping to glean what I can from the wisdom in this book & keep the #reconciler torch burning. That’s my hope, anyways. Rest in power, sir. #RichardTwiss _________________________________________ #floodlightinitiative #racialreconciliation #readingisfundamental #courageousconvo #courage #courageousconversation #equality #rezist #bethechange #makeyourownlane #race #blacklivesmatter #justice #whitealliesmatter #mythvstruth #privilege #conversation #resist #unity #unityindiversity #iamareconciler #bookstagram #books #booknerd #bookish #bookworm

The news from this weekend was horrible.
Please remember to care for yourself, drink plenty of water, and love yourself. When (it feels like) the world wants to see you fail, being healthy and loved is a form of resistance. #selfcare #squadcare #blackgirlmagic #ExistanceIsResistance

I remember being a student at Hampton U., freshman yr. One Saturday the whole campus was placed on red alert, strongly urged to not leave school grounds because of a KKK rally that marched right on our school road. That was almost 15 yrs ago. It's 2017. This isn't a new "Trump" America. This is who we've always been. It's naive to push past and solely focus on how we're all alike. I have very real fear, hurt & anger from my very real experience as a black woman in the USA. It will not go away by pretending we're in a postracial society, or by praying passively for unity. This will take some real work. Some truth-telling, some sitting with others in their pain/anger and listening. Some soul-searching, strategy-seeking prayer. Some courageous conversation about what brought us here and the strange fruit that history produced in our infrastructure, our communities, our hearts. But we start by lamenting what's already here. And deciding afterward what to do with our pain and confusion. ____________________________________ Do we add to the wreckage, or do we work towards something new?#Charlottesville #ThisIsUs #lament #truthbetold #truthhurts #truthtelling #somethingnew #courageousconversations

It takes courage to go against the grain of everything society says will justify keeping boundaries up between you & "them", to choose to initiate room for new relationships instead. But relationship--& the trust that can form within it--slowly destroys any fuel for our fear/pain-based generalizations and stereotypes to be the only lenses through which we see & hear one another. It helps us humanize one another (and groups of people) rather than demonize. And it helps us evaluate ourselves with more sobriety, less self-righteousness. Where can you lean in and initiate some courageous relationship today? #courageousconversations #racialjustice #racialreconciliation #floodlightinitiative #outsidecomfortzone

Last night's Building Bridges workshop was incredible!🙌🏾 16 convo partners met at @metrochurchdc from 7+ different identified nationalities discussing race, identity, privilege, intersectionality, fear, anger, listening well, & hope for here on out. People stayed to talk until 11:30pm!! Definitely just the beginning of an ongoing fruitful conversation. So grateful for my sweet hubby @c.o.a.c.h_ray for co-leading this with me, and for all the veteran Building Bridges girls from past & present who came to support and contribute their rich insight. Look out for the next one, coming up soon!!! *
