Framework:*The purpose of this resource document is to vet and filter the volume of resources available to align with our church's stance on racism and white supremacy.
*This resource list aims to provide a list of resources for the individual inner work of white supremacy.
*In order to make recommendations about selections that reflect our work at OSUMC, please use the following criteria to select resources:
1) Does the resource ask me/us to examine our role in white supremacy?
2) Does this resource ask us to consider racism in relationship to our Christian discipleship?
3) Does this resource expose me to new ideas/realities that are outside of my lived experience?
4) Does this resource fall within the developmental structure that we are establishing for this work at OSUMC?
