Hey Sistas,

Join Abby Perry and me for our second episode of My Sista's Keeper: Shalom in the City's Monthly Conversation on Race and Unity. This month we're exploring the idea of hopefully resisting division. 

When it comes to racial reconciliation conversations, what words seem to make us aware of division unlike any other? You got it, race/racism/racist. As challenging as those words are to discuss, we think it's worth it to really press in to what they mean in order to have a common, working definition as we go forward. So, on this episode, we're diving deep and getting all kinds of uncomfortable as we look at how race and racism operate in the world today. And we promise you, every word we say and question we ask - it's all in the name of peacemaking. 

We'll be honest with you, this episode had us pretty sweaty! We share stories, ask questions, and speak truths that we are confident are necessary for bringing about true Shalom in racial reconciliation. It's a deep one, but we think it's a good, too. 

We want to know what you thought about this episode and what this conversation has you thinking about: Come join us on Facebook at the Shalom Sistas’ Hangout and share your thoughts!

One Thing To Do:

For my White Sistas:

Attend one event this month where people who do not look like you will be. So, maybe visit a black church, go to the library in a predominately black community, visit a black history museum.

For my Black Sistas:

Pick one white friend you have who has shown interest in this conversation and pray for her.  Pray that God gives her courage, that he gives you compassion, and that he provides opportunities for you both to talk about your experiences with race.
