From George Yancy (NYT) and Abraham Joshua Heschel
“We have failed to deepen our collective responsibility. Some of us will never do so. What would the world look like if believers from every major religion in every country, state, city and village, shut down the entire world for just a day? What would America look like, on that day, if we who call ourselves believers, decided to weep together, hold hands together, commit together to eradicate injustice? We might then permanently unlock our sacred doors, take a real step beyond our sanctimoniousness, and see one another face to face.”
He goes on to cite Abraham Joshua Heschel, “Few are guilty, but all are responsible.”
— George Yancy, ” Is Your God Dead?“, The New York Times, June 19, 2017

This extract is from a communion hymn:
Crowded table, urgent faces,
people longing for the bread,
bread of life and bread for living,
bread for rising from the dead…
All are welcome, wise or foolish,
at this table all are fed,
sharing wine in celebration,
eating Christ’s communion bread.
