Community Part IV: Truth and Reconciliation
Mathew Mitchell continues our series on Community with a discussion about race and the church. This sermon covers unconscious bias, white supremacy, and the role Christians might play in transforming the legacy of slavery that binds us all. Drawing from the powerful work of Bryan Stevenson and James Cone, the conversation centers around three truths, four paths towards reconciliation, and a challenge to envision the Christ we’ve resurrected from the cross as the black bodies we haven’t resurrected from the lynching tree. This is a charged topic delivered with grace, humor, and conviction.
