Hello, Public Theologians.
I hope you all are enjoying these excellent late summer days.
This week’s topic for discussion touches on the recent news from Ferguson, Missouri, Civil-Rights era anthems, and the call to be something more than what we were yesterday.
Read through this post from David Lose (“low-ss”) and join us on Monday at 5:30 with the following questions in mind: www.davidlose.net/2014/08/lift-every-voice-and-sing/
1. Does the anthem “Lift Every Voice” at all illuminate the situation in Ferguson?
2. Are there other songs or anthems that connect to causes you are involved in? How does music play a role in uniting people?
3. Where are the separation lines drawn in our community? Do you think there are people here who regularly live in fear?
4. Does scripture and/or our participation in faith communities give us adequate language and direction to work in the midst of difficult human relationships?
See you at the Tap House.
