Doing Our Own Work in Learning and Sharing

We are starting a new sermon series on race, because we believe it is important for white Christians to learn and talk about race/racism. As we do this work, I encourage you to educate yourself by seeking out resources (books, podcasts, articles) by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). The resources below are a starting point. Moving forward, share what you’ve learned with other white people, push through the discomfort to engage in courageous conversations in your circles.
