Text: Exodus 19:2-8; Romans 5:1-8; Matthew 9:35-10:23
There is a narrative out there that what happened to George Floyd and Philando Castile was a fluke, the actions of a few bad cops in an otherwise good system. That narrative is false. If it were true, what happened to those men would not be happening with such regularity that I could randomly find two weeks, exactly three years apart where it was in the news. If it were true, there would not be a list of names of black and brown people to whom this same thing had happened. If it were true, we would not know the names of Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Freddy Gray, Janet Wilson, or Manuel Ellis.
