As we approach Pentecost 2021, and as we remember the solemn anniversary of the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, let us reflect on the Pentecost homily preached by Fr. John Bauer on May 31, 2020.
As we recognize the brokenness in our community due to racial injustice: We cannot turn away. We cannot ignore it. We cannot stand aloof from the injustices in our community.
“Peace is only possible if we pursue justice…Let us ask God that as individuals, as a community, as a city, that we might know the Holy Spirit’s gift of peace—and let us pray that we might be bringers of that peace to all those we encounter.”
