Worship Leader, FCNL Annual Meeting

This Sunday, November 15, 2020, I’ll be bringing a prepared message to Friends Committee on National Legislation’s Annual Meeting and Quaker Public Policy Institute. As with most events this year, this gathering will take place online, which allows many more people to participate. The theme is “Fierce Love,” and attendees will be lobbying our legislators on the topic of police brutality.

In line with these topics, I’m going to bring a message with the working title: “Friends, Racial Justice, and Policing: A Biblical Economy of Care.” Policing and racial justice in the United States are intwined with the structure of our economy, which includes access to land as well as considerations around property rights. I’ll be sharing from my own experience of protesting for racial justice this year, and present the economic models apparent in the biblical literature, which offer support for those otherwise marginalized in society. Each one is valued, each has access to resources, and none has need.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Paul! I would be happy to email you a copy of the manuscript if you like. I’m not sure if the message will be available in another form, but I’ll let you know if it is.
