A Race for Unity Simulcast
Race has divided our country and our churches. The Church must do all it can to forge a new understanding and dialogue. Culture tells us we must choose one of two “sides” – yours or mine, black or white, Asian or Hispanic. We invite you and your congregants to learn about The Third Option: honoring the priceless value of God’s image in everyone you meet.
A recent increase in high-profile, racially-charged conflict has led well-meaning people to wonder what they can do to help alleviate racial tension in our churches, communities, and country. For one day, churches across the Nation will open their doors, partnering with other churches in the community to be a gathering place for conversation, learning, and healing.
Pastor and author Miles McPherson will offer guidance on this issue by identifying the cultural influences that shape our attitudes on race, and explaining why we must honor the priceless value of God’s image in all people. Pastor Miles has first-hand knowledge of the importance of racial reconciliation. As a multi-racial man, former NFL player, and Senior Pastor of one of America’s most diverse churches, Pastor Miles has personally experienced racism, and witnessed its devastating effects the community. Pastor Miles will share what he’s learned about the healing power of God, and its ability to unite racially diverse communities, through God’s principle of Honor. He will elaborate on this Biblical principle, and will be joined by other pastors, as we learn together about the healing power of the Third Option.
In a straight-shooting, humorous style, Pastor Miles will ask soul-searching questions, and offer Biblical, practical, action-oriented steps that help us follow through on our good intentions, so that we can learn to honor, love, and enjoy “doing life” with our neighbors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Race has divided our country right down to our churches, even the church community. The Church must do all it can to forge a new understanding and dialogue.
