Instagram post 17885054215592296 Standing in solidarity with those who are outraged at racism, in prayer rather than politics; honest self-reflection, resisting the urge to judge others... We must lovingly confront any attitudes within our own organisation that would prevent us being a movement marked by unity. We believe it is the key to receiving God’s continued blessing on our work. In the words of Micah 6:8: ‘He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’ #BlackoutTuesday
