Divided By Faith book
Frank Thomas book - They Like to Never Quit Praisin’ God
Engage in the Bible in community.
Churches - sit in solidarity with those in pain.
Carry the cross with each other.
Bear one another’s burdens.
John saw the people there…the different colors of people who were there..the church is in proximity to Him and to one another…everyone wearing white robes
Reconciliation is something that God has to do…it is also something we can work toward…what if the picture of the church today exemplified this?
I agree, we are called to this purpose
The Faith & Race Check-In is a way leaders can "re-orient" to where your staff people are so you can plan accordingly.
Threaded, Project Unity, Dallas Clergy, and a new CCDA network are all great places we as local Church leaders can build relationships with a diverse group of friends.
RIPE - REORIENT, IDENTIFY WITH OTHERS, PLAN TOGETHER/TAKE ACTION, EXECUTE THE PLAN AND THEN RECRUIT OTHERS BACK INTO THIS PROCESS
There are a lot of resources available to us that make it easy for leaders to give our people spaces to build relationships with diverse friends.
