What exactly is being asked of us? Why should I be responsible for the sins of my ancestors? I’m not racist, but why am I made to feel like I am? What do you mean, ‘unless I am anti racist, then I am racist? It feels you’re asking for penance, not repentance? Can there really be justice in a world full of rebellion and hatred toward God? How does the gospel speak to race and social justice?
I am sitting down today with my friend Dr and Pastor Reginald Screen to discuss these questions and more. You will find today’s podcast to be both honest and at times raw. I shared with Reggie how many of us have a lot of question even at time wondering what is being asked of us from the black community and what will it take from the white evangelical church for there to be a true sense of healing.
