Call Me By My True Names

Ever since the tragic death of Trayvon Martin there have been many who, in solidarity with the slain young man, have proclaimed, “I am Trayvon.” I haven’t yet heard anyone admit to identifying with George Zimmerman. We will understand the true meaning of Beloved Community only when we can identify with the part of ourselves in both of these young men. This Sunday we also bless and send off our Sankofa Pilgrims who leave for a ten-day journey to Ghana.
