Friends, this is our final post for #AntiRacismForLent 2018. Thank you for undertaking this journey with us, and all our posts and content will be accessible here: Repenting Of Racism For Lent.
Most importantly, this is only a beginning, but hopefully it has inspired a new perspective and posture on learning, confessing, repenting and taking daily steps to work towards dismantling systemic racism and classism. We confidently believe it is in line with Jesus’ teachings. We pray and hope this spurs all of us towards greater awareness and action.
Please listen to Luke, Maddie, and Matthew reflect on the last 40 days, and look back over posts that they created with Lauren Grubaugh, Lydia Lockhart, Daniel Russell, and Meggie Anderson-Sandoval.
Thank you again to Andre Henry for the courage and boldness to spur us into this project. It. Doesn’t. Have. To. Be. This. Way. Check out his work at https://www.youtube.com/user/AndreHenryMusic
If you’ve learned something from these past 40 posts, please share them far and wide with love, with hope, and with earnest expectation that we will understand God more when we learn to love one another ever more deeply and ever more truly.
May your Easter be filled with a sense of hope and possibility that Christ died and rose again for every single one of our lives, every single one of our beautifully diverse bodies and souls, and that we can celebrate the good, good work of getting to know the Kingdom here on Earth every single day.
We at The Table Setters would love to break bread with you in that celebration and this ongoing work, soon. – Matthew
