Race and Equality Resources
After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands Revelation 7:9
God calls us to love one another. We strive to do this as well as we can, whatever differences there may be between each one of us and those around us. Our primary revelation for this is the Bible, which we believe contains good news for all people. We also look to God’s leading through the work of His Holy Spirit who we believe is alive and active today.
Over the last year we have been thinking, praying and talking about equality and diversity, with a particular focus on race. There are many resources available to help us learn and understand more about this topic. On this page we have shared a few suggestions that you might like to explore, but, if you have ideas about other helpful content, we’d love to hear from you! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas.
