As a church, we believe grace changes everything and empowers us to seek justice in the midst of racial brokenness. We’re committed to racial reconciliation and justice not just in this moment, but for the long-haul. This is gospel work, work that we’re committed to doing together as we learn, lament, repent, and move forward.
These resources, many from people of color in our denomination, are intended to help you in this endeavor. While this is not an exhaustive list of resources, nor a checklist for racial reconciliation in the church, many of our pastors and staff members have found these resources to be helpful in their own learning.
While we cannot endorse all viewpoints shared in these resources, we see the benefit in reading a broad set of viewpoints.
