Thanks, Urban Apologetics Community
I am honored to be leading a workshop at our National Conference. The topic is
“The Gospel as the Foundation for Racial Reconciliation”
Under-represented groups continuously cry against injustice and inequality throughout our societies. Sin is the cause of injustice and inequity. As an immigrant from Jamaica, I will begin with my own story of learning about racial injustice and inequality in the USA. We will seek to lay out a pattern for racial reconciliation and justice based on our dependence on God’s Word. First, we will look at the issue by addressing the:
- A pattern of racial reconciliation in the Scriptures
- The rise of the inferiority myth
- The black church and the backdrop of the black experience
Then we will suggest some ways to address systematic injustice and racial reconciliation by:
- Addressing the Biblical Kingdom agenda
- Prophetically declaring the Kingdom impact on the culture
- Incorporating urban apologetics in our theological discipline
- Practically addressing structural changes that are needed
No matter where we emigrate and what injustice we face, God has provided the right balance to deal with these issues. We are all made in the image of God. We are recipients of reconciliation by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We, therefore, have the suitable characteristics to lead reconciliation.
I want to thank Damion R, Adan Coleman, Jerome Gay Jr., Toney Evans, Dr. Eric Mason, Voddie Baucham Jr., and the Urban Apologist Community for resources that served as receipts to this workshop.
Several years ago, I needed information relating to Africa’s contribution to Christianity. I also wanted to be more informed about the rise of the Black conscious community and the Black Religious Cults. Also, this was in part to counter the statement “Christianity is a white man’s religion.” I was introduced to Brother Damion, who introduced me to Tomas Oden’s book, “How Africa Shaped the Christian mind. That started my journey into unbelievable discovery and understanding.
This introduction was the tip of the spare. I later got connected with the Urban Apologetics Community (UrbanApologetics.org) and Jude 3 Project. From there, I connected with Adam Coleman. This brother is the real deal.
Thanks to everyone for your invaluable contribution to my workshop.
