“Letter from my 26-year-old self: A Lesson in Anger, Humility, and Forgiveness”
Dr. Damon Silas, guest speaker
Today we welcome Dr. Damon Silas. His sermon is taken from a letter written 12 years ago, expressing such emotions as anger, frustration, and disappointment in the system that all too often seems stacked against people (and especially young men) of color. This was written about the speaker’s encounter being pulled over by the police, detailing the anger and helplessness that boiled over after having this experience approximately 5 times up to that point.
