A Church That’s Not Afraid To Talk About Racism In America

racism panel

This past weekend, my church (First Assembly of God in North Little Rock, Arkansas) hosted a panel discussion on one of the hot button issues of our day: RACISM. What followed was an hour filled with open conversation, shocking statements, raw feelings, surprising confessions – ALL done with the most incredible grace, mercy, and love that only followers of Christ can do.

If you think anyone chose to shy from the difficult facts, you couldn’t be more wrong.  Sit down, watch, and prepare to be challenged and encouraged.  God is at work in HIS Church!

  1. I love this!!!

    Our Church is very diverse (almost 50%), with lots of internationals!
    I really believe that its so important to be intentional about being diverse!

    Even as children’s Pastors we must work to address racism and broaden our kids’
    worldview!!! I think its something we don’t do enough!

    I wrote some blogs on it…
