A year after Ferguson, a practical theology emerges around ‘Black Lives Matter’

As the “Black Lives Matter” movement has grown, it has been accompanied by practical theologies of people who feel called to act on their faith in pursuit of racial justice, said Gunning Francis, author of the new book “Ferguson & Faith: Sparking Leadership & Awakening Community.”


It’s now become politically incorrect to say “all lives matter.” Several politicians have in fact had to publicly apologize for saying those very words. What I’d like to see is a more activist public theology based on that - lives born and unborn - than on just one segment of the population.
