Turn Conflict Into Community
Race and racism are so prevalent in US culture, that few stop to reflect upon what race is, why it was created, and how deeply ingrained race has become in American Christianity. It has left American churches segregated in the pews and divided in faith. Can this damage be repaired? Dialogues on Race explores that very question. With seven essays from leading Christian thinkers, Dialogues On Race asks penetrating questions about how the church in the US got to this point, and how, or if, white supremacy can be expelled from American Christianity.
Dialgues On is an adult small group resource that encourages honest talk about difficult topics. In a time when so many conversations end in conflict, these resources equip readers to share their ideas, listen well, learn from other viewpoints, and develop action plans to bring hope and healing out of the church and into the world. It is published by Sparkhouse, which is affiliated with the ELCA.
