Racial Injustice grieves the heart of God deeply. The entire gospel, the good news of God saving a people for himself is about unity. Without unity, there is no gospel. And yet, unity is a task that we cannot accomplish apart from God’s Holy Spirit working in us and through prayer. Here are several resources that we recommend as you pray, lament, confess, repent and act in regards to the sin of racism in our communities, our nation, and our world. May God give us eyes to see and hearts to lament.
Note: Elevate Hope Centennial would not endorse 100% of everything in every resource, but they are great resources to shape the understanding of racism in our culture.
