Race, Grace and the Gospel – Part 1
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year old black man who was out running when he was allegedly chased down and shot to death by two Caucasian men.
For a few days, the topic of race took over the newscycle. Talk shows talked. Advocates rallied. People ran.
But did anyhing meaningful arise out of the entire emotional display? Has American moved any closer to talking about why our problems with race in America persist?
In my two-part series on race, grace and the gospel during we’re tackling the tough issues of race.
Part 1: I’m talking about about race, grace and why God created different colors and cultures if He knew that we’d struggle so hard in this area. We’ll discuss why “colorblind” actually causes conflict and why “seeing” color is vital for us to connect with each other.
Part 2: This is a personal episode where I share how racism impacted my life. Additionally, we talk about lessons that we learn from the early church on unity as believers. There’s practical next steps that I pray encourages you.
