The church must build the bridge of racial reconciliation.

God is serious: He wants us to root out racism in the evangelical churches of America. He is not happy that we have dragged our feet on this! Government programs and political speeches don’t have the power to heal the problems we saw in 2015 in Ferguson, Baltimore, Charleston or Chicago. The church has been given the “ministry of reconciliation” (see 2 Cor. 5:18), and reconciliation will only work when black, white and Hispanic church leaders engage the enemy together.

God is saying: “A banner has been unfurled over this year, declaring Psalm 133:1: ‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!'”
