The Risk of Being Woke: Sermonic Reflections for Activists

Curtiss P. DeYoung

Are you a Christian, an activist, or both yearning for justice to roll down like water? Are you seeking Biblically informed spiritual guidance while keeping your eyes open to challenging societal truths? This collection of sermonic reflections from Curtiss Paul DeYoung, CEO of the Minnesota Council of Churches, written following the murder of George Floyd, provides spiritual sustenance for the activist soul. Reacting to high-profile police-involved BIPOC deaths locally and nationally, DeYoung turns to the Bible for inspiration to continue the work for justice, urging activists to remain spiritually awake as they strive for positive social change.
