Athletes from around the country turn to God amid George Floyd protests

Protests erupted around the country this weekend as people sought to voice their anger, their frustration and their sadness with the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn. While many of the protests were peaceful demonstrations against racism and police brutality, some escalated into violence and looting.

America continues to grieve as racial strife has brought the nation to its knees yet again. Sports figures joined in sharing their thoughts and emotions on social media, and many have turned to God for refuge, healing and reconciliation.

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the older order of things has passed away.” โ€” Revelation 21:4
