FIGHTING THE FIRES OF RACISM

rf By Justin Coleman The hashtag #ThisIsWORR is joining the list of hashtags such as #BlackLivesMatter and #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches meant to encourage sober reflection and just action in solidarity with the black community in the United States. In response to a series of church burnings that followed the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, leaders of some black churches are declaring July 12-18 a Week of Righteous Resistance (WORR), prompting the hashtag #ThisIsWORR. A website has also been created as a gathering place for individuals and groups to learn about and post activities that relate to the effort. Source: ministrymatters.com
