Race: Recommended Resources

IMG_3599

Last night, we took a look at Peter’s racial blind spot from Acts 10 and Galatians 2. As a Church seeking to be a multiethnic community, understanding the sin of racism and confronting it head on is of massive importance. We understand that this can be a polarizing topic, and we are committed to open conversations that are rooted in grace, not judgement.

Last night, we offered some recommended resources to help us listen to voices outside of our own racial perspective. Check them out:
