The Senate passed its terrible tax bill! TAKE ACTION

A Litany of Thanksgiving

November 22, 2017
On this Thanksgiving, I share again the beautiful prayer of great Black theologian Howard Thurman, A Litany of Thanksgiving, which my family reads together each year.

November 21, 2017
I’d say it’s unbelievable, but at this point Congress really is starting to feel like a season of Stranger Things .
