This week America again reached a civil rights tipping point following the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement. And while his death was indeed tragic sparking an unprecedented movement of protest against inequality and systemic racism present throughout our society, for many of us, the civil unrest and angst accompanying the protest seemed more a natural consequence of weeks of pent up frustration following the shutdown from the COVID-19 pandemic than purely injustice. So how can we make this movement mean more? How do we avoid falling back into the old way of thinking and force ourselves to think differently? Persistence. We invite you this week to listen to a special message from Pastor Tony Minear, Ph.D. as he explores the long enduring maxim that persistence pays off. Referencing Jesus’ parable in Luke 18, Pastor Tony examines the power one yields by simply being persistent. Listen and discover four tangible practices you can employ to build God up in the world and restore peace. Join us as we radically and persistently make God’s love real for all in a time such as this.
