George Floyd

A lot has been written in the press, and spoken about in the media concerning the murder of George Floyd. An article which struck me was this one in Christianity Today (thanks to Mark Meynell for bringing it to my attention).

A Tweet from Pastor Patrick Ngwolo which is quoted in the article is powerfully shocking and challenging to me as a white Christian.

“The fact that you have to build a narrative for a man to be loved and given justice is repulsive to me. Even if he was a capital criminal he deserved to be treated as someone created in his image. I’m done coddling Christians that can only love ppl they deem to be lovable.”
