A statement about George Floyd

Crossroads Community Center is committed to the dignity of all humanity and we stand for diversity, inclusion, and solidarity. We are grief struck by the death of George Floyd and the pain of the African American community’s ongoing social struggle. We pray that as a nation of rich ideas and energetic hope, we seize this opportunity with fearless creativity to heal the social and spiritual wounds that we live with. 

The turmoil unfolding in our cities is not unique in history or global current events–it reflects an unmet need for change, justice, and balance. It’s important to stay focused on this need and not allow the antagonism and violence between police and some present at demonstrations to control the narrative. The success of one group cannot ride on the back of another or push them aside. Each of us needs to play a part in finding that just balance.
