This Sunday, the Church Should Resolve to Confront Racism

One year ago, our city witnessed the raw evil of racism and white supremacy at the violent Unite the Right rally. Since then, our nation has grappled with the reality that racism is still very alive in American life, even within our churches.

On Sunday, Aug. 12, we will host a special service calling for continued racial reconciliation.

On the one-year anniversary of this dark day, it’s incumbent upon us to resolve to confront racism in our hearts and our communities and to see it for what it is: sin.

White supremacism, white nationalism, anti-Semitism and all forms of racism are evil. These ideologies do not represent the heart of Jesus and do not represent our Christian faith. If we are honest, racism is not an issue of politics, nor is it an issue that can be handled passively. We must face it head on, or it will continue to pit us against each other and lead us to hurt one another.
