Resources for Racial Reconciliation
We are grieved. As a ministry and as parents, we grieve the painful consequences of prolonged racial division and inequality in our country. We recognize that all parents are created uniquely by God, and it hurts us to see that our fellow parents are being made to feel less because of their skin color. God will not stand for racism, and neither should we.
Parents, please know that now more than ever, your children are watching how you, how we as a church respond. May they see us seeking reconciliation in our homes and neighborhoods, listening to other moms and dads who have lived different experiences than us, and most importantly let them see us on our knees asking God to open our hearts and to bring the healing and equality that this world desperately needs.
The hard work of healing starts today, first in our homes.
I recognize that I am by no means an expert on this subject of racial reconciliation, and so I’d like to recommend the following resources to families looking to dive further into this work and learn from trusted voices. I am praying that God will not only continue to refine and educate all of us as parents, but that he will help us to raise up children who love and respect their brothers and sisters from all backgrounds and races.
