“This shouldn’t be ‘normal’ in 2020 America.” Words of former President Barack Obama on the death of George Floyd, a black man in police custody. “It can’t be ‘normal.’ If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must be better.” His statement Friday came as protests erupted across our country. This is hardly the first time such a thing has made national news, and tragically not even the only act of violent racism this month.

Let’s focus on the Acts reading some today, for two reasons. First because of what we just heard in John’s Gospel, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.”
