“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.” – Angela Davis
The conversation about race and racism is not easy, but we must be committed to the necessary and urgent task of engaging in racial justice dialogues in our society, our churches, and our own lives. Reconciliation can emerge best when we begin to listen, learn, and understand each other’s experiences. When we sit down together and share those experiences, understandings, desires, it is here where healing can take place and reconciliation can be forged. Racism disturbs so many things in our society.
