21 Day Race Equity Challenge (day 1)
Our country needs to talk about racism. We can’t escape it, it’s problematic and it comes as no surprise that we need to confront it head on.
We would like to begin a 21 Day Race Equity Challenge. The idea was sent to one of our members from her friend at Myers Park Presbyterian in North Carolina.
The lead pastor of Myers Church writes “In these days of being isolated, we long for the time to be back together. However, before we get back to together, I encourage us to be “Better when Back Together.” For even before this pandemic, when groups, our nation, and the world gathered together, there was often inequity in the gatherings along lines of race. This inequity is a part of our history as a people that we cannot hide, and to ignore is to go against the will of Christ which is “to united all things in Jesus” (Eph. 1:10).”
This is the program: Everyday we will share voices and perspectives different than your own through articles, videos, and podcasts.

May God Bless us one and all!
