No matter what I say about this topic, I’ll face some criticism, but here it goes. As a parent and grandparent, my goal has been to teach my family to love ALL people and treat them like WE’D like to be treated. God created each person in His image. It’s heartbreaking that people are marginalized for the color of their skin. Equally heartbreaking—people apologizing for the color of their skin. Pastor Tony Evans says “Once we repent from the sin of racism, develop relationships across racial lines, then in unity, we can serve our communities. The church is supposed to be the salt and light of our neighborhoods regardless of the racial demographic.” As the Church, can we say that? Make it a priority for your family.
