    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1751] RELIGIOUS RESPONSE TO FERGUSON - As protests continue in Ferguson, Missouri in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, many religious leaders and members of faith communities are calling for new national conversations about racial inequality, social justice, and the use of police force. R&E discusses the responses of religious communities with Alton Pollard III, dean of Howard University Divinity School, and Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. "I'm particularly concerned when I see white people and African-American people not having conversations with one another about what's happening in Ferguson," says Moore. "That needs to change in our own congregational life." Observes Pollard: "We haven't always been able to figure out our way to each other, recognizing our commonalities, our similarities, even with all of the issues that continue to divide. "
    CHINA ORPHAN CARE - Former Hollywood screenwriter Jenny Bowen was moved to adopt two orphaned Chinese girls after she and her husband learned about the widespread abandonment and neglect of children in China, many of them girls. Bowen went on to found the Half the Sky Foundation, which has trained 12,000 teachers and nannies in 27 Chinese provinces to care for the orphans. "Before Half the Sky, children were tied to their chairs. They were lying in bed. You could see the tragedy," says Bowen. "These children are going on with their lives. They're being treated like their lives matter. They know it, and they know they're loved, so they thrive."
