Is Talking About Race a Distraction in the Church?June 30, 2021 ● 10 min

The church here in America hasn’t been excluded from this conversation. Talking about race- just like anything else- could cause a distraction or cause division in the church – but I don’t believe that it is either of those things.
Here are three reasons why I think it’s important for churches to talk about race and racism:
1. Christians aren’t immune from causing or experiencing racism.
2. The church, both globally and in the US, has a history of being complicit in racism
3. If the church doesn’t talk about these topics, it may be ignoring a division subtly shaping and affecting its people, ultimately hindering peace.
