Hate and Violence Cannot Defeat Love and Faith
Rev. Lee Spitzer, the General Secretary of our denomination (American Baptist Churches USA) has some thoughts about what all Christians may do to help thwart the rise of hatred around the world and right here at home.
He begins: we “mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15). As American Baptists, we stand in sincere sympathy with all people who suffer violence, injury and harm, regardless of religion, race, gender, culture or ethnicity. We oppose terrorism, violence and hateful ideologies. The Gospel of love surely shall triumph over evil.
He goes on to say, he wishes to do more and has suggestions on what that "more" should be. Give it a read: https://www.abc-usa.org/2019/05/a-pastoral-letter-from-abcusa-general-secretary-lee-b-spitzer/
