SEE RACISM MORE CLEARLY
Looking for gospel-centred resources to fight against racism? Read our Pastors' recommended resources to get you started. The goal with these resources below is not to agree with everything in every resource, but to begin listening and learning. We will be adding resources over time to make this list even better.
As our world reels from the gravity of racial injustice, we can feel the need to participate in marches and engage with difficult conversations in order to promote racial equality in our community. In the end, we must also begin with a posture of prayer and learner's attitude before God as we seek his direction amidst all this.
LISTEN & LEARN
We've gathered resources here to help you in listening and learning as we educate ourselves and share this knowledge with friends, family and co-workers. The goal with these resources below is not to agree with everything in every resource, but to begin listening and learning. We will be adding resources over time to make this list even better.
