Racial Justice and Healing

The sin of racism has infected our hearts as Americans and as a Church since the time of our founding. Dismantling racism for the sake of all people includes the hard work of naming our complicity in structures that disproportionately benefit white people. It also includes the holy and life-giving work of becoming anti-racist. We offer these resources to support congregations in this journey.
