||Clean0203 - Colorblindness: What If I Don’t See You As My Black Friend?||Colorblindness is the theory that if we ignore race, then racial problems will eventually cease. Is this term and theory helpful or unhelpful. Why or why not? How is it present in our culture, and how is it present in our churches?||3/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

We Need This
United We Pray is an important podcast for the church today. We must certainly do more than pray, but we cannot do less than pray. I remember reading a blog post from Trillia on this prayer in the midst of racial strife shortly after Charlottesville. I thought to myself how often we multiply our voices on issues of race without ever unifying our voices in prayer. Needless to say, we need this podcast.
This is so needed
This is a much needed podcast. We need to remember to rely on the power of the Gospel. So much hatred being displayed within the church. The only way we maybe reconciled because of the sin of ethnic hatred is through prayer and Christ!
"We can do more than pray, but we cannot do less."
So grateful that God in his grace has spurred Isaac and Trillia to create this podcast. What a gift to the church!
