13 Apr 03/25/12 George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin (Archive)
BOND Sunday Service, March 25, 2012: Jesse Lee Peterson invites people to comment on the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin incident in Sanford, Florida. Many black leaders are protesting, calling the “white Hispanic” neighborhood watchman “racist.” There were rumors and speculation (later debunked) about Zimmerman saying a “racial slur” on the 911 call. (Zimmerman would later be exonerated for the self-defense shooting of the 17-year-old black male.) Jesse talks about how thoughts deceive, leaders don’t care, parents fail, and black Americans fall for lies and anger. At the end we read Romans 8: 28-39.
