There are a lot of conversations happening in homes and churches about difficult and timely topics--but when it comes to race, too many Christians stay silent. They may be overwhelmed, or worry about saying the wrong thing.
Saundra Dalton-Smith and Lori Stanley Roeleveld--two women of different races who didn't know each other well before this project--believe there's a clear path to meaningful discussion about racism with someone of a different skin color. Instead of avoiding hard conversations, they enter a transparent and open dialogue about race, privilege, bias, and discrimination.
Readers will witness a real-time process as these two women walk their journey of self-reflection, discovery, and healing. Lori and Saundra demonstrate how to give voice to pain without blame, how to express anger without ridicule, and how to ask questions without guilt. After reading the pages filled with vulnerable personal stories, biblical teaching, conversation starters, and practical next steps readers will be equipped to have their own healthy conversations.
This book is for all who see God in ethnic diversity and want to be part of a true and deep understanding process. In these pages, there is hope to heal the racial divide and bring together the body of Christ.
