A Free Bible Study Series on How Christians Can Engage in Conversations About Race and Racism from a Biblical Perspective

Tuesday, November 17 at 2:00 p.m. ET

Race and the Gospel
Episode 5 — A Reconciled Life

Join us for the final episode of this five-part series with pastors Matt Chandler and Bryan Loritts as they use Paul’s words in Ephesians to address race, racism, and injustice.

The church that Jesus comes back for will be a multiethnic body of believers from every tribe and tongue around the world. In response to receiving the gospel, we can re-orient our lives to be hospitable and pursue relationships with people who are different from us.

Bryan and Matt use this last session to talk about what it looks like for our families to reflect God’s multiethnic kingdom vision.

Ephesians 2:11–16 carries a unique importance regarding an issue that has plagued American churches since the conception of America itself—racism. The doubt and frustration surrounding current conversations about race and ethnicity provoke questions like, “Why do we keep bringing racism up?” “Isn’t race just a social construct?” and “Isn’t there just one race—the human race?” However, our nation has come to a turning point where many Christians can no longer ignore racial tensions or use simplistic responses to deflect from the complexity of our country’s racial problem. As those who follow Jesus, Christians have the unique opportunity to enter into—rather than shy away from—conversations about race and reconciliation in light of the hope of the gospel.

Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.
