“God stands up to hatred and bigotry. God stands up to homophobia, racism, islamophobia, sexism, abolish, and all of the -isms we are yet to name. God is incapable of bowing to the false gods of this world."What injustices is God inviting you to stand up against?//Psalm 21:9-13You will make them like a fiery furnace when you appear.The Lord will swallow them up in her wrath, and fire will consume them.You will destroy their offspring from the earth, and their children from among humankind.If they plan evil against you, if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.For you will put them to flight; you will aim at their faces with your bows.Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength! We will sing and praise your power.//This episode was written and recorded by Jarell Wilson. It was produced by Rev. Jim Keat.
