Addressing Racial Ideologies

Addressing Racial Ideologies

It's a sin problem, not a skin problem. I'm colorblind. Our church isn't in a diverse area. Bring up race, and Christians have a predictable set of responses. We investigate how racial ideology functions to shield us from real conversations about race, and how we can confront engage them.

What does reconstruction look like for you right now?

By JR. Forasteros

JR. lives in Dallas, TX with his wife Amanda. In addition to exploring the wonders that are the Lone Star state, JR. is the teaching pastor at Catalyst Community Church, a writer and blogger. His book, Empathy for the Devil, is available from InterVarsity Press. He's haunted by the Batman, who is in turn haunted by the myth of redemptive violence.
