Reflections on Race and Christianity: Part one

by Feb 3, 2020VeritasBlog

Race can certainly be a hot and controversial topic. To some it is a topic that can’t be escaped because of the color of their skin. To others it feels like walking through a minefield, not knowing where to step or what to say in the fear of miss stepping, so it becomes a topic we avoid. But there is definitely a conversation going on about race, and as Christians we are not to be quiet while that conversation is happening, rather we are to be biblical. But it is more than just a conversation. This is a sin issue that has marked our history and should break our hearts. For the next four weeks we have put some content in front of you that speaks into race and Christianity to help us think biblically on this very important topic.

This week is an interview with Tony Evans. Tony’s book, Oneness embraced: Reconciliation, The Kingdom, and how we are stronger together, is available in our Resource Center. The second clip is a message by Tony Evans that carries the same title of his book, Oneness Embraced (a great message). It would be good to process these together with your Connection Group this week.
