I would love that Pastor Bill.
Don’t quote scripture at me right now, be the scripture right now. So Good.
so good! thank you for sharing.
Wow! So good!!
Thats so good. We need to be in relationship with each other. We need to have Covenant relationship with each other.
need to be able to have real conversations about how we hold privilege based on race gender and societal
Can we begin to have the covenant relationship by using as Chris is right now, using the term ethnicity, rather than race ... we are all one race are we not?
What word would you use to replace the word racism?
We are one spiritual race, but we are made up of many races biologically. I don’t see the incongruence, but let’s let a person of color answer.
And it’s everyone’s job to call this out - not just POC
Yes it is Teresa.
Yes, Pastor Timothy!!

Can we have follow up conversations on how to talk to our children and youth around this subject
no reconciliation can occur without transformation. There must be acknowledgment and change that produces relationship
Timothy, Samuel and Sonya, if you need each others email information, let me know.
Lord, we repent of racism. It's systemic, and it's in our churches. It's even found places on our own hearts. Lord, use our voices, and give us wisdom, empathy and sensitivity. Help us know how to discipline people who are in denial of this issue or minimize this reality. Help me/us demonstrate Christ like courage, love and reconciliation.
Good prayer Pastor Matt.

thank you for this call. just the beginning of a great conversation. looking forward to the next one.
come on Pastor Timothy! ❤️
Amen, Amen, and Amen! So blessed to be in a district that is having this conversation and committed to more conversations like this.
Victor, she pastors in San Francisco. Greater life Church.
Bill asked above about a word to replace racism…thinking in that vein there are other terms, i.e., issues, we need to consider and be aware of within ourselves and our churches are: implicit bias, discrimination, prejudice, microaggressions, microinvalidations (or overt invalidations), being culturally bound, cultural encapsulation, and ethnocentric monoculturalism.
Amen to all these prayers! Thank you and God-bless.
