Over the past few months at Restoration, we have been challenged to consider the American church’s complicity in racial oppression through our study of The Color of Compromise.
While CoC tells a historical story of the American church, The Very Good Gospel by Lisa Sharon Harper addresses similar issues (and more) using a theological lens. With simplicity and grace, she challenges the church to consider how we can participate in bringing about the Shalom of God on earth as it is heaven and as it was intended to be in Eden. She touches on a myriad of ways society and people of faith have contributed to institutionalized and systemic brokenness all the while calling us through prayer and reflection to “make it right” through the power of Christ in us.
Join us as we do the difficult, honest, and prayerful work of individual and communal introspection, so we can be people who seek God’s justice in the world for all people, things, and systems.
