Was thankful for the opportunity to partner with Community Christian Church – a multi-site congregation in the Chicagoland area – as they endeavored to have a church-wide discussion on how white Christians should think about white supremacy from a Biblical perspective.
Community Christian was co-founded by Dave and Jon Ferguson, and they have been dedicated to the mission of “helping people find their way back to God” for decades. Dave also co-founded the Exponential Conference, which resources thousands of pastors an a yearly basis.
In June of 2019 Community Christian did a series called “Conversations,” where they addressed three social issues that don’t get talked about enough in certain spaces: race, incarceration, and mental illness. For each installment they showed a 25-minute, edited video of Dave interviewing the speaker.
There is so much more to discuss when developing a Biblical worldview for understanding white supremacy, but I thought the editors did a good job of getting a lot of the important points from the White Awake interview. The link to the final video is below, with permission from Dave. I hope it can play some small part in advancing the conversation:
