This fall, we hosted a 9-week pilot class for participants to discuss racial reconciliation with a gospel-centered lens using Be the Bridge to Racial Unity Discussion Guide. The mission of this class was to bring together a diverse group of brothers and sisters in Christ to form meaningful and transformational relationships that equip them to serve our community effectively. Each week participants discussed various steps in the reconciliation process and what that requires of us as individuals and as collective communities.
One participant said, "I enjoyed hearing different perspectives through our Be the Bridge group and having a space to discuss difficult topics in a meaningful way. So much of what I see and read about racial issues is happening online so I enjoyed having actual dialogue with people in my community whose experiences are different from my own and learning from them".
Love INC is excited to continue using our position to build bridges between diverse groups of people and churches in the Cedar Valley. We are hoping to host more classes and groups that help missionally-minded followers of Christ to learn how to best serve and understand our diverse community.
