Given the events of Charlottesville, VA and beyond we in the church have a stellar opportunity to organize some healing conversations.
As public interest pans to the nagging racial inequities and injustices, here are some ChurchNext resources to help us organize helpful conversations and hopefully positive changes. For ChurchNext fans, you may remember we recently produced an entire series on the topic. Thanks to the work of Trinity Wall Street in New York, and their 2016 conference, Listen for a Change, we were able to assemble a helpful series of online learning classes
These include Spirituality and Racial Justice with Michael Curry, available in two formats, For Individuals and For Groups.
There are four more classes that are equally helpful:
Whiteness and Racial Justice with Kelly Brown Douglas, available in two formats, For Individuals and For Groups;
Racism and Racial Justice with Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, in both For Individuals and For Groups formats;
Reparation and Racial Justice with Jennifer Harvey, in both For Individuals and For Groups formats
Theology and Racial Justice with J. Kameron Carder, in both For Individuals and For Groups formats.
We join the vast majority of Americans in their downright hatred for racial injustice and pray that we who follow Jesus may be better equipped to address this pressing issue.
