Encounter & Outreach (5:36)

Production by Lauren Pond
Interpretive texts by Veronica Salinas

The bible says

The sign says

“IF WE DIE TO SIN WHY SHOULD WE LIVE ANY LONGER IN IT?”

Keeping in good faith
This is the love of God
What is the truth?
Who will tell you?

The truth will set you free

“God gave us laws BUT we don’t want to follow those laws.”

God given,

God taken,

We will take the prophet and take it

Questions of protection
The love of Christ compels
Us to take matters into our own hands

Sins
Lies

And personal thought determine futures
“ALL SINNERS WILL GO TO HELL”
“You didn’t die for me”
“All sinners will go to hell”
“You didn’t try to protect me”

“JESUS DIDN’T NEED A MICROPHONE”

“IF YOU WERE ON THIS SIDE, GOD CHOSE YOU”
“THE WORD SPECIAL MEANS BETTER”

“GOD CREATED YOU BLACKS, HISPANICS, AND NATIVE AMERICANS TO BE BETTER THAN THE OTHER NATIONS!”

“JESUS DIDN’T NEED A MICROPHONE”

(protesters on the streets shouting)

“WHOSE STREETS?”
“OUR STREETS!”
“WHOSE STREETS?”
“OUR STREETS!”
“WHOSE STREETS?”
“OUR STREETS!”
“WHOSE STREETS?”
“OUR STREETS!”
Voices in unison
produce power

“WATER IS LIFE!”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER!”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER!”

“WATER IS LIFE!”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER!”

“NO HATE, NO FEAR, IMMIGRANTS ARE WELCOME HERE!”
“NO HATE, NO FEAR, IMMIGRANTS ARE WELCOME HERE!”
“NO HATE, NO FEAR, IMMIGRANTS ARE WELCOME HERE!”

“NO BAN, NO REGISTRY, NO WHITE SUPREMACY!”

Like the hand beating a drum
Keeping rhythm by step, march, beat

The voice projects our feelings
Memories,
Emotion outpouring from mouths and hands

CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP

(singing)

“WE AIN'T GONNA STOP TILL THE PEOPLE ARE FREE”
