Alicia Garza Reflection by Maya Norton

 —  Monday, Mar 27th, 2017

I grew up in a family that went to church every week, and when I was younger, “lent” pretty much meant giving up candy and being more somber in church than usual. Now that I’m a bit older, however, I’ve been thinking about mortality as we approach Lent. What value is there in stopping at […]

I’ve had so many conversations today with dear people who are broken hearted, disoriented, terrified, angry, and confused. I’ve heard a few folks say they don’t know what to do now.
