“The Only One”

Date: June 26, 2022

by Rev. Tami Forte Logan
1 Kings 19:15-21

“And like Jesus, Audre Lorde challenges us to move beyond the silos of our oppression…to recognize that none of us are the ONLY ONES, that all of us need JESUS AND we need each other. So, in order to realize and actualize THAT type of collective-liberation, we all have to SPEAK UP whenever injustice rears its ugly head against ANY of us. AND because we are so socialized into ANTI-BLACKNESS in EVERY OPPRESSED group, while we are speaking up, we absolutely MUST CENTER the black voices and black experiences in those spaces as well. YES! Including within the LGBTQIA community. That’s just the reality of our nation, whose systems, including our church and education systems were ALL formed during American chattel slavery. So enslaved people AND their descendants are still yoked to the foundations of ALL of these systems in this country whether we believe it or not. It is just a fact!”
