Worship Service: "Say Their Names" by Rev. Ian White Maher

Black Lives Matter. Our nation, founded on the toxic ideologies of colonialism, enslavement, and capitalist exploitation, has journeyed through the night to this moment.

We cannot return to what is "normal." Normal is toxic and, quite literally, murder for too many of our fellow citizens.

Worship Service: "Try to Praise the Mutilated World" by Rev. Ian White Maher

So often, when we are facing overwhelming problems, we want answers that come from a technical perspective—what are the structures we need, the policies that guide, the groups that will administer—technical answers sound really attractive. We all want an instruction manual for our lives because it seems like it's the lack of knowledge that is keeping us from achieving the vision of the future that we hope for. But technical fixes will not solve our race problem, which is not to say we shouldn't implement technical changes in our system, but they will not solve problems with a spiritual origin.
