Good Friday afternoon!

Somewhat to my surprise, this week’s most clicked Monday article examines the raw emotions of an African American Christian following this year’s election. Read it here:

Raw Emotions on the Presidential Election

Friday Feature gives readers a chance to see the most clicked article from Monday. It also allows for a bit of my own insight. You can check that out below:

1. Afraid.

As a white man, I have not experienced fear over another’s racism. One of the few such memories of fear for me involved an impromptu traffic stop by Rwandan military officers who pulled over a caravan of our missionary team.

What this author expresses describes something altogether different, and white believers would benefit by listening.

2. “Perceived Closeted Racism”

I plan to do more digging to understand this concern. I have no basis to call it unfounded. However, I would love to hear a wider view of response to Trump’s election. The question, as presented, should challenge believers to think.

3. Embracing uneasiness.

If I chose, I could skate on past this election without much affect me. Or, I could do some work, listening to others as they process the results. Seeking that understanding will lead me to uncomfortable conversations and reactions I don’t understand. I’m perfectly fine with that!

Think. Do you bring a willingness to listen to the post-election culture?

Act. Engage someone you know you disagree with in a meaningful conversation.
