Living Room Conversations on White Racism (resource list)
At First Mennonite Church, where the Sermon on the Mount and Micah 6:8 are guiding Scriptures, two groups met recently to learn and reflect on white racism and white privilege and to discern our call to "do justice" (Micah 6:8) in the context of systemic racism. The resources used for these conversations can be found here. We have identified possible follow-up actions and are discerning next steps as individuals and as a congregation.
May God stir us from white denial and complicity, so that God can use us and help us remake the map, such that “Ferguson” is Nowhere.
May it be so.
