7 Last Words: Strange Fruit Speaks - A Reflection

Last night, I attended the event 7 Last Words: Strange Fruit Speaks, sponsored by the Princeton Theological Seminary Black Church Studies Program, Black Lives Matter, Shiloh Baptist Church and the Urban Mission Cabinet of Trenton. What follows are my reflections. They are necessarily incomplete and full of errors. They will be read into both fairly and unfairly. My biases and my own faults will be laid bare. Hopefully they stir a conversation. Hopefully they stir us all to listen and to discern, to pray and to cry out.
