ANNO DOMINI VOICES

ISSUE 1 |  8 JUNE 2020

As the world rages against police brutality and systematic racism, and stands in solidarity with black lives everywhere, what are some of the voices we should be looking to, whether for comfort, or critique?

Thabithi Anywabwile always challenges me to think in a gospel centered way about Justice. He has often helped me tons.​

The apostles did not preach so that there simply would be a new me, but so that there would be a new we

It’s all in snapshots. For me, I’m listening to the anger. Not one voice but the collective voice of anger that is everywhere. In the USA, South Africa and also here in Kenya.
