How the Black Church taught me why #BlackLivesMatter (it’s not what you think)
In the summer of 2014, I served a ministry internship at Henry Logan Memorial United Methodist Church in Parkersburg, WV. It was my final seminary assignment: to serve an internship in a cross-cultural setting. I don’t take the term “life-changing” lightly. There are a very few things about which I would use that phrase in my own experience…my marriage, the births of my children…that’s about it. But the three months I spent with the folks at Logan literally changed my life. They set things on a different trajectory than the one I thought I was on.
