Racism in America and the Church

About

Racism is real. White privilege is real. And we are all affected by the impact of these realities, whether we acknowledge them or not.
Lent is a season to which we are called to contemplation and introspection of how we live out our faith. The ELCA has been committed to social justice issues in our church and at large. We have been active in our pursuit of inclusion of women and the LGBTQ community and have made great waves toward an open and welcoming community of faith. Yet on this one issue we are found wanting. Despite our push toward justice in an unjust world, we remain the whitest denomination in the United States.
Racial justice in the church requires that we embrace, not only black faces but black experiences. That is why, during this Lenten season, Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Phoenix is hosting a series discussing racism in America and in our church.
United in Christ’s love, a just world for all!

Mark 8:34-37

If you want to come after me, you must deny your very self, take up your cross and follow in my footsteps. If you would save your life, you'll lose it, but if you lose your life for my sake, you'll save it. What would you gain if you were to win the whole world but lose yourself in the process? What can you offer in exchange for your soul?
