Friday Finds

Week Two of Friday Finds – here we go!

I actually found this last week but forgot to share: Open Letter to the Female Dog in Go Dog Go. This was apparently my favorite book as a toddler…I loved it so much I memorized it and could recite it verbatim, complete with well-timed page turns, so people would think I could read.

There were other funny/random things I wanted to share, but my heart is so heavy right now because of what’s happening in Tulsa…in Charlotte…really everywhere there are people with sinful hearts.

I struggle to understand my place, my role, in this movement and how I can make a difference.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading and have a lot more to read while I try to understand the whole of the situation and discern the Lord’s will.

To the White Parents of my Black Son’s Friends – this has been circulating on Facebook lately and I thought I’d add it here.

Books I’ve Read

  • Democracy in Black
  • God Help the Child
  • The Bluest Eye
  • United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity
  • Brown Girl Dreaming
  • Between the World and Me
  • Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County
  • Just Mercy

Books on my TBR List:

  • Jesus and the Disinherited
  • Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit
  • Negroland: A Memoir
  • The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness
  • Men We Reaped
  • Bloodlines: Race, Cross and the Christian

Lastly, this song by Natalie Grant has been my anthem this week.  “We’ve gotta do better than this because we only have one chance to make a difference/Gotta to better than this because we only have one life that we’ve been given/A little love, a little kindness, a little light in this time of darkness/It will be what makes the difference/It’ll be what makes us human”
