Black identity is under attack, once again, in the Georgia runoff. White allies are tired from the “hard work” of getting Trump out of office. We’re ready to return to normal. Will the white church find the courage to advocate for the right of Black leaders like the Rev. Raphael Warnock to retain their faith?

Or will we join the calls to white wash the prophetic voice of the Black Church?

We continue to deny the full expression of humanity made in the image of God when we refuse to accept identity, call, and vocation in the life of Black women and men. We deny God’s authority to incarnate prophetic witness in anything other than a white body, white culture, or white-ness.

How can we claim to believe the very incarnation of Jesus – a life of prophetic witness lived in a brown body?

Advent is a time to prepare for Incarnation. More than 2,000 years ago, Incarnation came in the most unlikely of people, in the most unlikely of places – an unwed teenage mother. Where will the incarnation of white advocacy for Black identity come from today?

Working toward Beloved Community.
