Ponder
Everything is breaking.
 
Insurrection in breaking our sense of national identity. White racism is breaking black lives. National leaders are breaking our laws and institutions. Our economic policy is disproportionately breaking the poor. Our fear of each other is breaking our communities. Our denial of reality is breaking our hope for a better world.
 
Everything is breaking.
 
As scary as it is...let it break.
 
Let it break our bigotry. Let it break our hate. Let it break our fear, our privilege, our aggression, our silence. Let it break our delusions, our failed national leaders, our systems that oppress. Let it all break.
 
When we give up the hope of fixing our systems, we free ourselves to create new ones. 
 
Yes, everything is breaking. Let it break. A better world is possible when we let go of this one.
 
We are in this together.
Cameron Trimble, UCC Pastor
