2. My former minister and still friend Vince (the one whose new church was featured on the Today Show) is co-editor of a devotional called Rise Up!: Spirituality for Resistance.

Anyway, this book is also available for preorder, and there is also a preview of the book available so you can know if it’s for you (it is).
