(Relevant) Over the weekend, Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz virtually sat down with Bishop T.D. Jakes of the Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas for a long, wide-reaching conversation about George Floyd’s death, the history of American racism manifesting as violent oppression and a Christian theology of protest.
“Those are triggers,” Jakes says after Lentz reads off a long list of names of black men and women killed by police. “And when those triggers go off that trauma comes back. And the anger that you see is not about one incident alone, but it’s about the multiplicity of many incidents.”
