New today from the Century
Children at the grave, by Melissa Florer-Bixler. For career day at my daughter's school, I brought pictures of some of the things pastors do. The students were mostly interested in the funerals.
Black love of black people, by Jennifer Harvey. White Christians have to decide: will we show up and act for racial transformation, or will we sit idly by? But BLM isn't waiting to see what our verdict will be.

A brief review of God Mocks, by Terry Lindvall.
