Authentic faith doesn’t ask you to smile and pretend everything is okay when it’s not.
The past week and a half I've been thinking about something President Obama after Trayvon Martin was killed: "you know if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." I can't get those words out of my head...I am a new dad. Just over a year into parenting, I can't stop thinking, "I have a son, and he looks like Kyle Rittenhouse."
Faith isn’t blind optimism. Faith is clear-eyed rule-breaking love. Faith can change the world.
