New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Reflections for the Work of Liberation

The prophetic, pastoral couple, Gabby Cudjoe-Wilkes and Andrew Wilkes, pen this book of poetic and prophetic devotions that dare to center the lives of Black people caught in exile and entanglement with the American project.

In times like these, we all need to center ourselves on the word for replenishment, renewal and revitalization. Pastors Wilkes offer that for us in this devotional.

In this introspective daily study of the book of Psalms, Pastors Gabby and Andrew successfully address the concerns of our people, help us unpack our feelings around injustices, give voice to the shared feelings of the collective and challenge us to be bold in envisioning life, and our lives, differently. This is the liberating Bible study that I’ve longed for and love to share.
