Forest Hills Presbyterian Church deplores the death of those unjustly killed by police officers, particularly Black citizens such as George Floyd. For far too long, Black people, along with other people of color, have been subjected to racist and systemic brutality by law enforcement.

Our faith is a faith of wanderers. Abraham and Sarah were nomads, yet God blessed them and made of them a great nation. Mary and Joseph were homeless tourists who no one would take in, and later were refugees in Egypt, a strange land where no one spoke their language or worshipped their God. Yet, through them, the Light entered the world. Even Jesus himself spent most of his life without a home to call his own, lamenting that “foxes have holes, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lie down and rest,” (Matthew 8:20), and living off the compassion of his friends.
