Thanks to each and every one of you who are walking this journey of racial reconciliation with us at Grace Church. During the month of July, we began by listening to stories that helped build our knowledge of slavery and the on-going effects of discrimination and oppression. We listened to perspectives that helped us understand why this work is so critical for the healing of our world. And, we created a safe space for you to wrestle with the questions on your heart.
Remember that this is a journey. It takes our dedication to doing the work and our willingness to discuss painful topics. It requires that we come to the table with an open heart and a desire to be changed.
This month, we will go deeper into personal stories of what it means to be black in America. We will also continue to build a foundation of historical knowledge that has brought us to where we are today.
