Clergy and the Violence of Peace

Peace? / Quora

  It’s a long way from Dallas to Ferguson…but I had to go. I knew you couldn’t follow God and sit on your ass.   The air went out. Fire was all I knew. Sweat poured down my face. God met me there.   When I arrived, I was introduced to the clergy group. One […]
