    I was surprised at my extreme emotional response to this message. I thoroughly enjoyed the first (un-incriminating) third, laughing at the humorous account with sign-language. Then my world exploded in silent rage when the conversation turned to being a prophet as a dangerous, deadly occupation. Given how angry I became, I might have been among those who picked up stones to stone Jesus. I never seriously considered how completely incomplete my narrative might be. I wish I wasn’t as angry as I was. I long to have a soft, teachable heart. How can my heart be changed? Perhaps viewing the Selma movie screening and being part of that discussion will help. I believe the date for that was January 6. How can I sign up?

      Hi Twinkie Person. Thanks for your vulnerability and sharing how you responded. These are tough issues to navigate and they expose a lot of our raw feelings. We will be seeing Selma together with 3 other churches from Washington, DC on January 6. Hope you can join us for the screening and the discussion.
