If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3

Following the death of a black man named George Floyd under the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer named Derek Chauvin, widespread protests and violence continue to shake our nation.

One positive result of the coronavirus is that health, family, church, helping others, access to food, and having a job are being re-prioritized as important over the usual trivial pursuits, such as buying things, recreation, and entertainment.

And yet even these important aspects and others—government, political leadership, education, economics—pale in comparison to what took place this weekend about 2000 […]
