We are the ambassadors of Jesus Christ in the world today. This is our mission field, this is our time and we cannot be silent. Some thoughts on the events of the last week and the Christian’s response to racism.
Also Listen to The Reconnect’s Spotlight interview with Jemar Tisby: After Charlottesville, How will the White Church respond?
In the wake of what happened in Charlottesville, VA, and the President’s disappointing response to it, we want to discuss the reality of racism in America and the necessary response of pastors and churches. We are talking with Jemar Tisby, the president and co-founder of the Reformed African American Network, RAAN. He’s also the co-host of a podcast, Pass the Mic. His writings have been featured in a number of locations. He’s got a piece posted right now at the Washington Post Acts of Faith entitled “After Charlottesville, Will White Pastors Finally Take Racism Seriously?” Jemar serves as the director of the African American Leadership Initiative and is a special assistant to the chancellor at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. You can follow him on Twitter @jemartisby, and you can check out what he’s writing at RAANetwork.org.
