CONVERSATIONS ON RACIAL JUSTICE & HEALING

Despite the challenges of COVID, we continue to press in to the learning journey on race we’ve begun.

Though we weren’t able to finish our original series “Renewing Our Minds on Race” in person, we continue to engage prayerfully through a series of conversations.

READING THE BIBLE IN COLOR

One of the core affirmations of the Christian faith is that all human beings are created in the image of God — and that God always intended to create a people of all nations, tribes, ethnicities, and languages to worship him. One of the implications of that ‘biblical anthropology’ is that the image of God is expressed more fully when people of multiple cultures are represented. This Fall we are offering a series as part of our Conversations on Race in which we have the opportunity to “read Scripture with” — with Christians who come from other racial/ethnic backgrounds than many of us at Redeemer. We’re excited to see what we might learn through these conversations — about God, about Scripture, and about us.

NEW! Save the date for our next conversation, “Reading the Bible Latinamente,” with Pastor Oscar DuPuy. Tuesday, November 17th, 7:30 p.m. on Zoom. More details to come…

Dr. Esau McCaulley — an ACNA priest and professor at Wheaton College — joined us on October 2oth for a conversation about his book, Reading While Black: African-American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope. You can watch the video below, or read a rough transcript of the conversation here.

RACE, DISCIPLESHIP, AND THE WHITE CHURCH

We recently had a wonderful conversation with Pastor David Swanson, author of Re-Discipling the White Church.  You can watch both parts of that conversation below or via our YouTube channel, or read a rough transcript of the conversation here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).
