Every 5th weekend is a Unity Table weekend. During this weekend you are invited to use the Unity Table book as a resource and gather with people who do not look like you (virtually or socially distanced) to share a meal and learn more about one another.
This month the meals are to take place during the weekend of August 29-30, 2020. You schedule your own meeting days and times, and we would love to hear about how they went! Please send your feedback, or any questions, to email@example.com.

The Church & Racial Reconciliation
Right Now Media – Race and the Gospel
Ephesians 2:11–16 carries unique importance regarding an issue that has plagued American churches since the conception of America itself—racism. The doubt and frustration surrounding current conversations about race and ethnicity provoke questions like, “Why do we keep bringing racism up?” “Isn’t race just a social construct?” and “Isn’t there just one race—the human race?” However, our nation has come to a turning point where many Christians can no longer ignore racial tensions or use simplistic responses to deflect from the complexity of our country’s racial problem. As those who follow Jesus, Christians have the unique opportunity to enter into—rather than shy away from—conversations about race and reconciliation in light of the hope of the gospel.
In this five-part series, pastors Bryan Loritts and Matt Chandler use Paul’s words in Ephesians to address race, racism, and injustice. Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.
