Bridging the Racial Gap
Racial Reconciliation and Healing
Given the history of racism in our culture, we need to intentionally work towards confession, forgiveness, racial reconciliation, healing, and equality.
Speaking the truth in love. Open and continuous discussions to address racism as the evil that it is in history and present social milieu is important to create awareness and make it unfashionable to practice racism.
Safe Spaces for Expression
Safe Spaces where those who have experienced racism can express themselves, grieve, vent anger to listening ears and be heard.
Forgiveness and Healing
Forgiveness is the first step to healing. Unfortunately, many African Americans and Alaska Natives have harbored bitterness for a long time due to the trauma inflicted on them by racism.
We need divine intervention to stop racism. Racism is a sin of the heart that needs to be rooted out supernaturally. We need God's help to change our mindset across racial lines. We need healing from the trauma of racism. We need God in our communities.
