The evil of racism has pervaded our world for far too long, and God is calling his children to act. As children of light, empowered by God’s life-giving Spirit, we are called to speak against oppression and abuse and to come alongside those who are hurting. Many of us can feel the weight of grief experienced by our friends of color, but we don’t always know how to help or what to do. In this episode, Wholly Loved Ministries team members Jennifer Slattery and Robrenna Redl discuss ways we can unite together to bring healing and affect true and lasting change.

• Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation by Latasha Morrison
• The Myth of Equality: Uncovering the Roots of Injustice and Privilege by Ken Wytsma
• Oneness Embraced: Reconciliation the Kingdom and How We are Stronger Together by Dr. Tony Evans
• White Awake: An Honest Look at What it Means to Be White by Daniel Hill
• Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America by Michael O Emerson and Christian Smith
