The Gospel and the Jena 6

Pastor Lance Lewis offers some reflections on questions to ask and things to think about in connection with the civil rights unrest in Louisiana. Here's the conclusion:
Finally brothers, what is our responsibility to navigate the rough rapids of race in a way that demonstrates our unity, promotes the gospel, honors Jesus Christ and helps our society through this contentious issue? Will we just stand by, take our respective sides and watch our society continue to stumble in the haze of hostility or will we stand out, speak humbly and live boldly by standing side by side demonstrating the gospel’s power to bring unity despite our differences.
