For Changes and Challenges
Here’s the honest truth: this project titled “How to Be Less Busy” has been sitting on my desk for the past
forty-four 51 days. I’ve missed the deadline on completing it four times. Every time I’ve set about to get this thing done, some other dramatic need swoops in to tyrannize my time. I’ve just been too busy to write about not being too busy.
Rev. Will Willimon boldly exposits that race is fiction, but racism is fact. The recent actions by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, attest to the reality of racism. Humanity is diverse in appearance and action on the outside. While we acknowledge (and even celebrate) diversity, we also await the day when we will unanimously recognize the Divine Spirit and human worth that exists within each of us. To bring about that day, we need to talk about and confront the reality of racism. It’s not too late for us… nor is it too early to talk about it with our children.
