New Year’s Eve Watch Night Service

On New Year’s Eve I joined with other faith leaders at the Watch Night Service at the historic Metropolitan AME Church in DC. There was part of my soul that had been shattered since the election — a part that no one could reach. But the entire service — testimonies, music and song — touched and healed that part of me. So deep, I didn’t even know it needed to be healed until it happened. I will never forget standing there, tears streaming down my face with the deep knowledge that I will not bow down in the fire; I will not stand down, no matter how tired. Thanks to William J. Barber, II for that gift. Whatever I gave, I received ten-fold. #RevolutionaryLove #MoralRevival
