This upcoming Sabbath (breakfast starts 11:00am and service begins at 11:30am)
The results of Tuesday’s election have left many of us grieving, frightened, and angry. We are left with questions of how to pursue justice and bring about the commonwealth of God. This sabbath, we will gather to lament and look for ways to work for justice. James 4:9 says, “Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom.” Lament is not a way out of dealing with the situation, but rather a way in. We will lament through song, and then discuss ways to move forward with our guest speaker, Rev. Andrew Wilkes.
Rev. Andrew Wilkes is the associate pastor of Social Justice and Young Adults at the Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York. A 2016 FPWA Faith and Justice fellow, Wilkes teaches public policy at City College of New York and is passionate about doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God.
