"God I pray that we're all the same color in heaven, because if by chance I'm seen the same way that I am here [on earth]… I don't want to go there."
I came up with the lyrics to this short song a few months ago after watching a documentary that touched on systematic oppression. Today I sung these lyrics after discussing my personal experiences with racism. How beautiful it would be to wake up today knowing that the same grace that Christ extends to humanity is the same grace humanity willingly extends to each other. "Lord help me to be more like you!"
Random Shout out to my housemates for their willingness to go deep today. In order to prevent sinking the ship over and over again, we must be willing to shed light on the iceberg(s)- specifically the portion which lies below the surface.
