February is Black History Month. As we lift up our Black brothers and sisters in prayer, let us do so with the hope that every person in this country regardless of the color of their skin will be treated with love, respect and equal opportunity.

“We have come this far by faith,” so the Gospel hymn reminds us. Let’s let hope bring us Home.
