Revelation 7:9-10 – New Revised Standard Version

9 After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands.

10 They cried out in a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb!”

A look at issues of race and racism affecting our world and church, including some historical perspective. Where we are as a nation and faith community in addressing race and advocating for antiracism. Understanding privilege and how we can enlarge our point of view to understand the impact of race and the value of diversity for our church today.

Painfulness of what racism does and brings to people. Hope for our learning, changing, embracing antiracism.
