Black Lives Matter
Recognizing that racism is an institutionalized pattern reaching far beyond any single incident or person, our WorshipWeb team has curated a collection of #BlackLivesMatter worship resources.
Black Lives Matter (or #BlackLivesMatter) is a movement and a stance in response to this reality: the United States was built on a legacy of slavery, racism, and oppression that continues to take new, ever-changing forms. To say that "black lives matter" doesn't mean that black lives are more important than other lives, or that all lives don't matter. The systemic devaluing of Black lives calls us to bear witness, even as we acknowledge that oppression takes many intersecting forms.
