30 Days of Anti-Racism
Today's task is to recognize racism within your community. I am thankful that our 30 Days of Anti-Racism focus is intersecting with books you are reading, shows you are watching, articles you are clipping, conversations you are having, and studies you are taking. Once we get past our fears and defensiveness, God can help us develop in ways Jesus taught us. We can live into the community of faith that can transform the world.
Here is an online test out of Harvard you can take that measures implicit bias. I appreciate the warnings they give multiple times. "If you are unprepared to encounter interpretations that you might find objectionable, please do not proceed further." Thinking about racism in our community, culture, and lives can feel threatening. Breathe. Trust that God is helping us. Receive forgiveness and grace. Take this time for honest conversation. Know that you are loved.
