Radical Farmers Use Fresh Food to Fight Racial Injustice and the New Jim Crow

Land and food are matters of justice. This is an interesting (and radical - in multiple senses of that word) example of restorative justice. http://www.yesmagazine.org/peace-justice/radical-farmers-use-fresh-food-fight-racial-injustice-black-lives-matter. (Brought to our attention by Jess Weeden - ACU Honors Alum and Paul Quinn Farmer.)

If we are to create a society that values black life, we cannot ignore the role of food and land.

ASTONISHING NEWS: the Word becomes flesh and dwells among us, full of grace and truth. Our news is that God is not distant and unconcerned. Our news is that God is gentle and surprising, entering this broken and dark place in a scandalous sort of way, with a pregnancy for an unmarried woman, to a young couple on the margins, from a nowhere back-water town, who have a questionable family-tree. This is how God breaks in, as a baby. Perhaps we could call it a 'gentle apocalypse.' Our world and our expectations and our way, all turned 'up side down.' Everything can be different, now. That is the NEWS! Merry Christmas!
