As we witness events unfolding all over the world over the past week, Rev Lynnette Li’s message last Sunday on Justice 2.0 is even more urgent. Will we stand with in solidarity against hate and violence? Will we speak truth to power? Or will we stay silent?
In a recent video, Fr. James Martin, SJ says “Every time you shout ‘White Power!’ you might as well be shouting ‘Crucify him!’ And any time you lift your hand in a Nazi salute, you might as well be lifting your hand to nail Jesus to the Cross.”

This Sunday, Jorg Dietzel will be speaking on Home 2.0, and i keep thinking about what Jesus said in Matthew 12:50 – “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
