Rector’s Forum: From Conditions to Crisis
with The Reverend Traci Blackmon
America is a nation that responds well to crisis. When crisis come, whether they be environmental, like the fires of California or the flooding of Southern states, or natural, as in the recent hurricanes that destroyed inlands and islands, or bombings in neighboring countries… we respond well to crisis. We have protocol in place for crisis. We have reserve funding set aside in the event of emergencies. We triage. We act. And we move masses until the cause and the effect of crisis are under control. But our collective response to life-threatening conditions that plague our society are not treated with the same urgency or attention. What will it take for the social ills of our society to be seen and addressed as the moral and spiritual crisis they indeed are?
