The story of Jemel Roberson is truly a hero’s tragedy. The Church in America cannot afford to get this one wrong. Christian conservatives cannot fall asleep on the job for this one. The lost life of this young man should rally the American Church together, not to make an enemy of the police but to stand in solidarity about this reoccurring problem in our country.
I am not attempting to address all the ills in our country or even the most recent ones, nor am I attempting to address why we have all these ills in our country. That said, I do want to address the Church's response (collectively and individually) to the wrongful events in our country involving discrimination and injustice in our communities.
