Muslim Ms. Marvel, Moore v. Harper, Mourning Migrant Deaths
KTF Weekly Newsletter
It has been a heavy few weeks, but we are pressing on in both hope and lament. We pray that these resources challenge, encourage, and inform you as you seek to leave colonized faith for the Kingdom of God. Now, let’s get to it.
Last week, 53 migrants were found dead inside a truck on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas. One Homeland Security agent involved in the investigation has called it the deadliest human smuggling case in America’s history. This gut-wrenching poem by Afro-Peruvian theologian Karla Mendoza commemorates the lives of those lost, despite the fact that we still don’t even know many of their names. It is a poignant cry of lament against the dehumanizing forces that would strip image bearers of God of their innate value, dignity, and most of all, belovedness. For those of you who are still mourning or struggling to even know how to mourn this horrific loss, let it be a prayerful meditation.
