The evil of racism has long plagued humanity. Yet Jesus, through the power of the gospel, shows us a better way — a way to find true reconciliation and unity. But that isn’t without its challenges.
So we ask ourselves questions like: What does racial reconciliation look like on a daily basis — in our homes, our churches, and our communities? What are some practical ways we can pursue unity — not just in our theology, but also in our actions?
Join SBC President Ed Litton, former SBC President Fred Luter, Missie Branch, and Jon Kelly on Wednesday, February 23 at 11 a.m. ET for an important conversation about racial reconciliation in the SBC.
If you are:
- A pastor or church leader who wants to pursue unity in your church
- A Christian who wants to seek racial reconciliation in your community
- A seminary student who wants to prepare for ministry in a culturally diverse area
- A parent who wants to raise your children to understand God’s beautiful design for different races and ethnicities
You will benefit from this important conversation that promises to bring some fresh perspectives to an age-old issue.
- How to navigate challenging conversations about race
- How the SBC has worked towards greater unity in recent years
- How you can take practical steps to create unity in your church
- How the SBC can continue to advance racial reconciliation
- How you can pursue racial reconciliation in your community
- And more
As Christians, we are called to model a better way in this fallen world—a way that reveals the inherent dignity of each individual made in the image of God. Just as the imago Dei influences our work to save the preborn and care for the vulnerable, it also drives our work to advance unity and racial reconciliation. I hope you’ll make time to join us for this important conversation!
