“White supremacy culture teaches us to mix up making a mistake with being a mistake. And that distortion can put up formidable defenses in us when it comes to seeing the ways we need to get caught. That distortion teaches us to garner all our energy to fight off the pain of shame and embarrassment, of being wrong or of being someone who has done harm.
But Jesus wants to teach us about true accountability–the kind that believes in your capacity to be healed and redeemed.
True accountability doesn’t destroy lives and spirits and souls, it restores the golden threads that connect us to each other and to God.”
