samuel-martins-631378-unsplashWhite Evangelicals Are the Most Fragile of all White People is a bitingly brilliant article by Brandi Miller, which I highly recommend. Linked within the piece is an older article by Miller, published on The Salt Collective: The Chasm Between White Theology and Black Liberation. As I read the first article, I couldn’t help thinking, Why do I bother with Christianity at all when Christians keep ruining it? And as I read the second: the history of black liberation and Jewish liberation have interesting parallels.

And, finally, this verse from 1 Thessalonians came to mind: Test everything, and hold fast to what is good.

Test everything, and hold fast to what is good.
