To fulfill our mission, we have prayed about social problems in our city and tried different ways to make a difference in the past couple years. Outreach to the homeless and connecting with college students at community art events are some examples. We have also prayed for the violence, racial inequality, and leadership of the city.
On August 6, the church held an introductory panel discussion on the church’s role in racial reconciliation and social justice. At the core is the fact that justice reflects the character of God. The panel discussed why racism is sin, the definition of justice, concrete actions to be peacemakers, and the nature of white privilege. They also discussed critical thinking regarding politics, as well as reconciliation with God--as individuals, and at the level of social systems. (For the podcast, go to atthelight.org.)
