The Beloved Community and the Heresy of White Replacement: How “Beyoncé Mass” Gave Me Hope After the Buffalo massacre
"...over the opening notes of Beyoncé’s “Halo,” which preceded communion, Rev. Dr. Norton also offered these words of hope: Repentance is not a one-time thing, but a developmental process, a journey that requires a confrontational truth-telling. The liberation and healing of the oppressed. Repentance and conversion of the oppressor. The building of the beloved community."

We can do a better job of waking up to the realities of the marginalized and the oppressed.
