Pastoring reconciliation

Pastoring for Racial Reconciliation

Pastoring for Racial Reconciliation

Are you passionate about racial justice and reconciliation but find it hard to persuade your predominantly white church that it is a crucial part of the Great Commission? Through this material, we’ll ask you to examine your own life, the rhythms of your church, and the dynamics of your geophysical context to uncover hidden and lingering racism and oppression. We’ll reflect on the deep scriptural emphasis on becoming a “new family in Jesus,” one that does not benefit from the other’s marginalization, but is strengthened by freeing the oppressed. Finally, we’ll guide you through five concrete and practical steps you can take to lead your church towards becoming the “Beloved Community” that is a witness to a racialized world.

We estimate that this will take you 11 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).

This guided lesson in made available free of charge.
