“THROUGH MANY DANGERS, TOILS, AND SNARES”
by Rev. Don Rollins
Sunday 11am EDT by Zoom
You might recognize these lyrics from the third verse of “Amazing Grace”. Our contract minister, Don Rollins, will borrow from the hymn, and a children’s story, to lead us in a reflection on how we persevere.

“Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police. Because reform won’t happen.” by Mariame Kaba
“When people, especially white people, consider a world without the police, they envision a society as violent as our current one, merely without law enforcement — and they shudder. As a society, we have been so indoctrinated with the idea that we solve problems by policing and caging people that many cannot imagine anything other than prisons and the police as solutions to violence and harm.”
“Defund the Police” by Keenga Yamahtta-Taylor (August 14, 2020)
“Is Prison Necessary? Ruth Wilson Gilmore Might Change Your Mind” by Ruth Wilson Gilmore
