Before white supremacists descended on Charlottesville this weekend, Dr. Cornel West and Rev. Traci Blackmon held a prayer service.
They spoke about the power of love, the need for justice and why the Bible calls us to stand up to hate.
Rev. Blackmon preached, “Faith calls us to see the humanity in one another. The Christian scriptures call us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus says that even our enemies are our neighbors. That is the kind of radical, unconditional love that we are called to live out as people of faith towards one another.”
