Below are some resources curated for you by Pastor Gio Sanchez and Lisa Kraft that are beneficial if you are looking to further explore the issue of race in America. Many of the resources mentioned approach the topic from a biblical perspective, though some approach it simply from a historical perspective.
You can also reach out to Gio or Lisa if you’d like to join “Bridge Builders” which will be a 3-session small group exploring what a fully racially reconciled church could look like. Watch this video by Lisa explaining the heart behind this group and please reach out to either of them if you are interested in joining the group which meets via Zoom starting Thursday, July 23rd at 6:30 PM.
