Racism is a historical construct of idealized humanity. It deforms Christian understanding of Christ, of co-humanity, and of community. If the church is to be faithful to Christ, to teach and practice love of one another in a society still sick with racism, it (we) must be undone by the gospel. We must be re-calibrated to healthier norms that speak the language of Jesus and justice. In this Summit session, we will explore the challenges and assets the church brings to bear as it struggles to be undone—as it struggles to change the world
