God calls us to love one another. Not to love those who look like you, think like you, and speak like you…But to love every[one]. The social justice movement underway demonstrates that more active support and engagement is needed, from those who are in a place of influence, to end systemic racism in our country. The underlying causes are complex, and there is not one easy solution. But that does not mean we cannot start right here at home.
Shepherd’s Gate has always been open to every[one], though we know now that we can and must do better. This community has so much to offer. And God has put it on our hearts to do more – to be a living example of His word and love one another with every[thing] that we have. This is going to be a journey…we will move past the discomfort to speak up, lean in and step out – to share the love of Jesus and go where He leads us.
We put together the following resources to help seek racial reconciliation and are forming a task force to combat what’s happening in our country & world.
