Bible 7 & Bible 8: 19th Journal Entry

Most of you know that I do not avoid the controversial topics at this point.  So, this post will be a response to a blog post about the recent events in Ferguson and NYC.  It also has to do with Advent.  If you are unfamiliar, Advent is the Christian season where we focus on the waiting time between now and the birth of Christ.  Churches all over the world will be focusing on Jesus’ birth narrative for the next month.

Watch this link for how the two topics relate.

Prompt

What is your reaction to the blog post?  What is your reaction to the current events which have occurred in Ferguson and NYC?  What is your response when you think about the season of Advent?
