Back to Lift Up Lowery

We lifted up Rev. Lowery, and he returned the favor

Thank you so much, to everyone who participated in this cause of lifting up this man and his spirit in the face of all of the divisiveness surrounding other folks chosen to pray at the inaugural. You made a difference, by choosing to point the mainstream media toward the power of Rev. Lowery's witness and work. You made a difference, by looking beyond the white-focused and white-privileged mainstream media and lifting up this man and his long-standing fight for ALL marginalized people.

May his prayer continue to hold us all, may God give us strength "to turn to each other and not on each other."

For those of you who may not yet have seen or heard his benediction, here is a link to the YouTube:

And may all of us who do justice and love mercy say AMEN!

Peace,
Rev. Kristen Dunn
