Ferguson: I am.

Am I?

I am Ferguson.
I am Michael Brown.
I am Darrin Wilson.
I am.

I am undone.
I am dispirited
I am irate.
I am.

I am filled with fear.
I am filled with courage.
I am filled confusion.
I am.

I am filled with despair.
I am filled with hope
I am filled with fear.
I am.

I am filled with guilt.
I am filled with passion
I am filled with apathy.
I am.

I am found in the aftermath.
I am found in justice's pursuit.
I am found in mercy.
I am.

I am found in the problem.
I am found in the solution.
I am found in the struggle.
I am.

I am found in the dark.
I am found in the light.
I am found in the apathy.
I am.

I am found in the riots.
I am found in the peaceful protests.
I am found in the desperate tears.
I am.

I am a black man; I matter.
I am a white man; I matter.
I am a child of God; I matter.

I am a bringer of Grace.
I am a bringer of Hope.
I am a bringer of Peace.
I am a bringer of Love.

I am all of these things.
I am all of these things and I am in search of the better way. 

May this first day of Advent bring with it the assurance that in the midst of despair and utter chaos we have Christ. We have hope.
We do. 
We do.


"And even if the sun should grow dark

...even if the moon refuses to shine
 ...even if the stars should fall from the sky
 ...we will have Jesus, 
...Light of the World, to shine brightly in our hearts, lighting our way."
