Black Lives Matter What Would Jesus Do Irvine California June 13, 2020

This has got to stop, yet it keeps on happening.  Unarmed children of God are being gunned down by police in the streets of America.  Let me ask, should we just be quiet and "pray" change really does come this time?  Should we bow our heads and ask God for the strength to "forgive" again?  And Again?  And Again?  Well, this weekend, in Atlanta this time, there was another Police Killing as Rayshard Brooks, who was completely cooperative with Police officers, who patted down and unarmed, who said, "It's my daughter's birthday tomorrow" and "I can walk to my sisters from here Officer" was gunned down like a stray dog.  Let's be honest now.  More than likely, any of us melanin challenged adults would have been given a warning and probably a ride to our sister's house.  But our brown brothers?  Hell no, Rayshard was shot in the back attempting to flee because he couldn't bare the thought of missing his daughter's birthday.

The good news; even the churches are getting vocal and rising up.  Following are images from Saturday June 13, 2020 as various churches (COR and Saddleback Church to name 2) rallied hundreds of Orange County residents and church members to march for Black Lives Matter, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and an end to systemic racism and police brutality in America.  The marchers were supported by members of the Irvine Police and Orange County Sheriff Officers who marched along side.  There are many poignant images from that day but, in light of this being a church sponsored event, I have to go with that ultimiate question of Christian Conscience, "What Would Jesus Do?". 

Bless, Eric
