Are you concerned with the division so prevalent today, particularly around race? Perhaps you’ve been longing to pursue racial justice and reconciliation, but don’t quite know where to begin. Wherever you are at in your journey, you’re invited to this 4-week experience exploring interactive content and biblical themes as a catalyst for honest conversation, deeper empathy, and tangible next steps as a follower of Jesus. What you will learn:
- Racial Literacy: key terms to understand and communicate about issues of racial justice + reconciliation
- Racial Identity: the importance of personally forming a healthy racial identity & understanding the ideology and impact
of white privilege, fragility, and supremacy
- Rooting Out Racism: how race impacts opportunities + outcomes for those in West Michigan and beyond & ways
individuals can impact root level change within institutions and systems
- History + Hope for Change: where we have been as a nation and (American) church, and where we can go from here
