Tough to Contemplate Being a Good Samaritan in a Stand Your Ground World – A Lament

travonPutting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s sermon on Jesus’ parable of the good samaritan when my computer interrupted me with a newsflash that heralded a “not guilty” verdict in Florida. It’s tough to contemplate being a good samaritan in a stand your ground world. Feels like a few more nails were driven into the body of Christ. Jesus wept!!! But Sunday will come!!! We who believe in freedom cannot not rest!!! But for now the sounds of lament cry out….

One thought on “Tough to Contemplate Being a Good Samaritan in a Stand Your Ground World – A Lament

  1. I am a 72-year-old white woman who was born and grew up in the south–south GA and south AL. I have seen what happened to Travon Martin many times. Zimmerman was guilty, at the least, of manslaughter. The jury was wrong. Justice was not done. I pray that there is a God and that in God’s own time, Travon will be exonerated. I pray for his soul. I pray for his parents. God help me. At this time, I cannot pray for his killer.
