Chalica Week 8: Dismantle racism in order to create a diverse, multicultural Beloved Community

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. 

– James Baldwin

Justice is what love looks like in public.

– Cornell West

Chalice Lighting

History, despite its wrenching pain

Cannot be unlived, but if faced

With courage, need not be lived again.

Lift up your eyes upon

The Day breaking for you.

Give birth again

To the dream.

(Maya Angelou)
