Join us for a virtual healing circle on July 07, 2016 at 1:00 PM EDT.
Dear ABFE Family;
In searching for words, the best that I can come up with is “good morning”; yet that just doesn’t seem to cut it today. Many of us are settling into the work day with heavy hearts….sort of robotic…letting the Spirit move us through mundane actions. Yet, all is not well; we are in pain. We question whether our work for racial justice and Black liberation is making a difference at all. On days like this, we just don’t feel like it matters.
In addition to pain, there is rage. James Baldwin explains, “to be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious, is to be in a rage almost all the time. So the first problem is how to control that rage so that it won’t destroy you.” This is the time to focus on healing and self-care. Let’s give ourselves permission to do that today. We practice this in many forms – prayer, reading the Bible or other spiritual writings, listening to music, etc. Most importantly, it is the time to come together. For that reason, ABFE will open the phone lines for anyone who just needs to “BE”. To hear encouraging words. We know that answers, solutions, strategies and action will come – much is already underway. But today, let’s just come together as a community to love one another.
If you can to join the call, register. And share with others who also need to “be”.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the virtual healing circle.
