“It is not the job of our black brothers and sisters to educate us on the issue of race”. I’ve heard this a lot in the last few days, and I agree. There are many incredible resources out there to educate yourself. Here is a list our team has compiled that we highly recommend. We encourage you to spend time this summer listening and learning to the history of race in America and the current issues that presents. Then ask God how you should respond.
