Conversations about race and ethnicity can be uncomfortable. Often parents don’t know what to say or how to say it. It might seem easier to duck a hard, confusing subject, but your children are already learning about race from the world around them. But are they hearing what God has to say in the Bible?
Pastor Jerome Gay Jr. equips parents for conversations about race, helping you take an active role in ensuring that your children are given a biblically rooted and gospel-saturated view of race and ethnicity. Learn tips for discussing issues of injustice and biblical reconciliation, as well as proactively engaging and learning from others from different ethnic backgrounds. By not shying away from this topic, we will be equipping our children as kingdom citizens who reflect Jesus to a polarized world.
