On this July 4th…


Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8).

In our celebrations today, may we not forget those for whom this country was created: those who wished for freedom and a better life. Those “tired, poor, yearning to breathe free, the homeless, and the tempest-tost” (Emma Lazarus). Let us not forget. Let us keep fighting for justice, for freedom, FOR ALL. July 4th isn’t for those of us who are already free but is held in stewardship as we (should) continue to love and to work for those who are not yet so.
