Session 1: Part of the Solution
Session 2: The Answer is Not Political
Session 3: A Lot to Learn
In 1974, John joined a church led by a black pastor. That relationship opened John's eyes and mind to the reality of racism in the church and the need for intentional acts that would lead to healing and harmony.
Session 4: The Posture of a Servant
John continues to share the importance of being involved as a listening and learning servant with people who didn't look like him to be an agent of God's healing and reconciliation. This included John's work on the continent of Africa.
Session 5: Be Aware, Make A Connection
John explains the need for each believer to be open both to their own blind spots and the reality of other people's perspectives. He then shares examples of bias and racism in the Bible so believers will not be so surprised when they find it in the modern church. Finally, he shows that we must "touch" others if we are serious agents of reconciliation.
Session 6: A Personal Philosophy
The unity of the body of Jesus is important and it requires intentional acts to address issues that mar or work against that unity. Remember that the goal is reconciliation and healing.
