Like Ecclesiastes indicates, history repeats itself and is cyclical. But what if the cycle isn’t flat like a toy train on its tracks but moves up a spiral toward greater awareness like C.S. Lewis suggested years ago? Our intersection with white privilege and black oppression is not at the same strata as it was 50 years ago: for all that is wrong and is being challenged right now, God is taking us to a higher level this time around.
Corinthians 1:2 “To God’s church that is in Corinth: To those who have been made holy to God in Christ Jesus, who are called to be God’s people.” Corinthians 12:24-27 “But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
