Father Christopher Elwood marches with Black Lives Matter protesters on West Jefferson St. in downtown Louisville, Ky. on Sept 26 in protest of the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case. The institutions of government, the institutions of police, have been not living into compassion and love and justice,  Elwood said. The clergy have come out to represent that commitment to justice. The commitment to faith to care for those who are suffering. To care for those who are brutalized. Its a time when our faith calls us to be in the streets and with the people.
