What are some ways that Christians in America can work toward racial justice?
Can racial justice efforts help with evangelism and apologetics?
How are social issues like racial justice connected to the gospel?
When you travel and speak in predominantly White organizations, what kinds of dynamics do you observe?
It is helpful for White individuals like me to seek out the perspective of individuals of color, but is it sometimes helpful for us to do some research on our own first?
Some individuals of color have shared with me that they want to help White individuals to grow in their understanding of racial concepts, but it can be pretty exhausting. Can you speak to that?
