The Hidden Wound (10-25-15 Sermon)

“For now, for myself, I hold the small phrase Black Lives Matter as a gift: unsolicited, hardly uncomplicated, unruly in my daily life. I hold it like a prayer, asking what it has to teach me, as a minister, as a citizen, as a mother, as a person infused with whiteness, infused from my birth with the mythology of whiteness. It is one bead on the makeshift rosary I try to keep in my hands.”

-Rev. Victoria Safford, “The Hidden Wound”
