Message Regarding Ongoing Racial Injustice 

As the body of Christ, we all share the responsibility to speak against injustice and demonstrate God’s love. We understand that there’s great divide in our nation and this may create feelings of uncertainty, sadness, anger, frustration, fear and grief. Acts of violence and racial injustice is exhausting. Lack of compassion and empathy between one another is intolerable. You might have even found yourself asking, "how long before it ends and we realize that we are all God’s creation?"
 
As Latasha Morrison examines in her book, Be the Bridge, “The truth is that each ethnicity reflects a unique aspect of God’s image. No one tribe or group of people can adequately display the fullness of God.”
 

In Galatians 3: 26-29, Paul writes, "So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise."

 
We recognize these are difficult emotions to process, especially during the constant stressors of a global pandemic. We continue to support our students against racial injustice and invite you to speak to our staff to work through these issues together. Please visit our Mental Health Resources page to read through additional resources for Coping with Racial Injustice.
