Unity Crew: Shades of Brown: Love Your Neighbor

Community, Interests, Online, Prayer

No one can deny it exists yet talking frankly about it is one of the few remaining taboos of contemporary society. We often feel like we've come a long way in regard to race relations and we hear myths such as "I'm colorblind" or "Anyone can achieve the American dream if they just work hard enough." However, while we have made some advances toward racial equality, we still have much work to do. This group will examine the biblical and historical realities of race and racism as a foundation for asking difficult yet necessary questions about where we stand today--and where we must go from here. It is a safe place for those seeking to build a firm foundation for pursuing mercy, justice and racial reconciliation as God intended though His Church. This spring we will read and discuss David Docusen's book Neighborliness. This book encourages us to become the neighbors Jesus was talking about in the Greatest Commandment (Mark 12:28-34). As we learn to embrace the beauty of God across dividing lines, we can see our communities healed and whole.
