Undivided: A Conversation on Race and Faith

 
ALL UNDIVIDED CONVERSATIONS ARE AVAILABLE VIA FACEBOOK: Green Valley GVBC St. Joe
 
(Excerpts from the book: Undivided: Your Church & Racial Reconciliation from the MBC)
“I THINK IT IS ONE OF THE TRAGEDIES OF OUR NATION, ONE OF THE SHAMEFUL TRAGEDIES THAT 11 O’CLOCK ON SUNDAY MORNING IS ONE OF THE MOST SEGREGATED HOURS – IF NOT THE MOST SEGREGATED HOUR – IN CHRISTIAN AMERICA.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
UNFORTUNATELY, LITTLE HAS CHANGED IN THE MORE THAN FIVE DECADES SINCE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR, MADE THIS STATEMENT.  OUR HOMES AND OUR PLACES OF WORSHIP ARE STILL LARGELY SEGREGATED.  IS THIS MERELY A REFLECTION OF OUR CONTEXT, OR IS IT A REFLECTION OF OUR FAITH?
Race and reconciliation is a conversation that can be hostile and extremely polarizing.  Emotions range from fear and frustration to fatigue and indifference – or even anger.  But, we are the Church, and God’s people are called to be peacemakers and ministers of reconciliation.
 
We should want to see God’s image bearers redeemed and God’s family united.
 
As we get started, we must all confess we come to the conversation with our prejudices and personal experiences with race, and God’s Word may not currently be the primary source shaping our view on race and reconciliation, but it should be, and it can be.
 
Pastor David Mason has spent six weeks on a special series “UnDivided: a conversation on race and faith”.  These conversations are all available via our church fb page: Green Valley GVBC St. Joe.  We would like to encourage everyone to watch these conversations between Pastor David, and his friends, from our NW Missouri community.  (Originally aired, January 9 – February 13, 2019)
