What does it mean to believe that Jesus will return and judge? And when judgement so often evokes fears of punishment, shame, and exclusion, are their other ways of understanding it? After we explore these questions, we spend some time reflecting on, praying through, and meditating on the questions we have and the hopes we have for the world. The reflections and prayers from this time were written by Cole Arthur Riley and published through her Instagram, @blackliturgies.
If you would like to donate to help us provide comfort food to the 6th graders at Jefferson Traditional Middle School, after the tragic loss of their classmate, T’yon Horston, you can visit our give page and make sure to designate it to the Jefferson Traditional fund. The money donated to this fund will help purchase the Chick-fil-a lunches and any money that surpasses that cost will be given directly to the school to be used at their discretion. As always, we have strict guidelines in place that our care funds cannot be accessed for other needs besides what they are designated for.
At the beginning of this episode, we gave an update on The Tribune Project as we reached the half-way point in the commitment period. If you would like to join us for our next work day, you can let us know by filling out this form.

In the Tribune Project update we shared two weeks ago, increased costs for Phase 1 renovations had created a gap of roughly $1.5MM between our project resources (giving commitments, grant funding, and mortgage) and our renovation costs. This weekend, Jason gave an update on the project and what we’ve been able to accomplish over the last few weeks – spoiler alert: it’s good news. For more information on the project, to revise a commitment, or to make a new one, head to thetribuneproject.com.
If you are looking for the full gathering you can head over to Monday’s episode, which also includes this update.
What do you do when you look at tomorrow and see what it will demand, and then look at today and the resources you have, and realize it’s not enough? This is an experience we can all relate to. It’s also a fitting question for us as we continue our work on the Tribune Project, and this episode contains an in-depth update on the project.
