Heal Us, Emmanuel – Discussing Race and the Body of Christ
Most Christians would say they believe all people are made in the image of God and are equal before Him. They would say red, brown, yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. But do they have any friends of another race? Is there anyone at their church who does not look like them? Does this matter to God? The majority of American Christians do not have significant relationships with anyone who does not look like them, which makes them susceptible to cultural blind spots and less effective as ambassadors for biblical justice. Over 30 church leaders contributed to Heal Us, Emmanuel and desire racial reconciliation, representation, and supernatural unity in all the churches of Christ. Together we will engage in a series of discussions about race using Heal Us, Emmanuel as an aid, in order to learn more about the love of God and His plan for the church.
