Event description

Description

Recent high-profile events have highlighted national awareness of race-based division in our communities. In response, culture has tried to force everyone into picking between two options: community or police, Black or White, Hispanic or Asian, “us” or “them,” racist or “not.” I believe that culture is wrong, and that there is a Third Option that embodies the principle of loving our neighbor, by honoring the priceless value of God’s image in everyone we meet. The Race for Unity simulcast will help participants examine their own attitudes on race, and offer practical, encouraging, and action-oriented ideas that will enable them to enjoy doing life with their neighbors of all colors.

That's why we're joining Pastor Miles McPherson by inviting you to attend the “A Race For Unity” simulcast, which is based on the principles in his upcoming book, The Third Option. McPhersons' light-hearted, encouraging, and soul-searching discussion about the toughest racial issues of our day will help humble willing hearts to learn how to honor and love all people, equally.

The Body of Christ is called to lead on this issue; this teaching will equip you in your efforts. This event will:

  • Identify racial “blind spots” that prevent us from honoring the image of God in others;
  • Offer advice on how to identify & overcome racism in our hearts;
  • Suggest practical ways to develop cross-cultural competency;
  • Provide ideas on how to initiate meaningful conversations on race within and beyond the walls of the church;
  • Help attendees develop personal accountability in living lives that honor the image of God in others.
