What words for Independence Day?
We’re free! Alleluia!
Free from what? Free for what?
Independence at what price?
What words express our fears when we see ourselves becoming those from whom we rebelled?
What words hold the power of our confession as the oppressors from whom others have sought freedom?
What words express our desire to celebrate, confess and hope for change?
