This month I’m honored to share this blog space with Victoria Monet Aguas — a poet, writer, theologian, and dear friend. You can find more of Victoria’s work at www.theologyreflected.com.
A note from Victoria about this poem: I wrote this poem out of a place of processing all of the heated back-and-forth chaos on social media, especially in regard to conversations on race. I’ve found myself overwhelmed and broken over the intense fragmentation of relationships splayed out on social media. I’ve also been troubled by our lack of ability to see and treat others as human both in and out of the digital space. Out of these thoughts and disturbances within me, I wrote this piece in attempt to imagine the hope that redemptive friendship could bring to our current space.
