A Turning Point Toward Greatness?
A friend of mine said she was brought to tears by the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. She has been in the civil rights fight for decades. You would think that she’s seen worse than this in the past. And yet for the first time in a long time she was crying again. I believe this was because after generations of progress it feels like nothing has changed. Is this what greatness looks like?
Yes, things have seemed pretty dark lately. But then again, maybe this will be a turning point. Already we hear some conservatives condemning white supremacy and nationalism. But we can’t simply wait for the world to change. In fact, it takes constant vigilance to keep evil at bay. MASC will remain ever present with your support. Together we will continue spreading the message of racial justice and harmony.

AWESOME PICNIC LAST SUNDAY!
Here are a few choice moments. From water balloons to sack races to two kinds of competing Midwestern tater tots (jury says both won) a great time was had by all. Thanks everyone for turning out and see you again SOON!
