A robbery, a lynching, and a mourning mother shake up the Yada Yadas.

I had never felt so violated The Yada Yada Prayer Group was “gettin’ down” with God in prayer and praise one night when a heroin-crazed woman barged into my house, demanded our valuables, and threatened us with a 10-inch knife–a knife that drew blood.

We wondered if we’d ever get back to normal after this terrifying experience. I assumed we would. After all, we’d started praying together at the Chicago Women’s Conference last spring, and we’d been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. This was just one more hurdle to conquer, right?

But then a well-meaning gesture suddenly incited a backlash of anger in the group, forcing us to confront generations of racial division, pain, and distrust–and stretching our friendship to the limit. And a shocking confrontation in my third-grade classroom forced me to face my own accountability and learn what true forgiveness really is.
