"LOUD Hate, quiet church." That's the name of the blog I'm working on and was planning on posting today. My angle was how loud the hate, racism, bigotry etc..has gotten and how quiet, perceived the church has gotten in response.
Last night I had rehearsal for worship team and then after, when I planned to go home and finish writing, I served next to my pastors for a few a bit. We spent the evening painting the room where the children will be ministered to. We took it from a dirty and bland room to a clean, bright and energizing space. As we painted together, I was able to laugh and joke with them and also to have my half empty cup refilled.
You see, the blog I wanted to write was coming from a place of hurt and bitterness. It came from feelings of believing that when crap started to hit the fan again for People of Color in this country the church took cover instead of fighting along side us. I think that I'll will write the blog but after an evening of seeing my pastors serve late into the night, for the second time this week, and being ministered to by the very community that I felt was NOT for me....I'm at a loss for words. So I will write the blog and with a different perspective I think than I initially planned but not today. Have a great weekend folks!
