Blyth Barnow in Our Bible App

Blyth Barnow wrote a Lenten devotional for Our Bible App.

There is no resurrection without first tending to the realities of death. It is a reality that over 68,000 people died of an overdose in 2018. It is a reality that half a million people are incarcerated as a result of the war on drugs, and people who are Black are nearly four times as likely as whites to be arrested for drug offenses. It is a reality that between $8.6 billion and $10 billion was made by the legal marijuana industry, run mostly by white men, while this death and incarceration continues. This Lent we must confront the deadly impact of the racist war on drugs for our loved ones, our community and our country. Together we must journey to reclaim the resurrecting spirit of Harm Reduction.
