Healing “humanity’s sore heart”

Sometimes, in humanity’s efforts to progress it seems as though we are taking one step forward and two steps back. For instance, in terms of race relations, recent events in the United States indicate that we still have some way to go. 

A recent conversation with a friend who is Black made me more aware of the long-term repercussions of the United States’ history of slavery, and of other issues in the world pertaining to human rights and race relations that continue to need our prayers. Acknowledging past wrongs of thought and action as well as current wrongs that need to be righted is a first step toward reconciliation and healing.
