We're grateful to have had a couple days with Jemar Tisby last week, both for his talk on Thursday and the time he spent with Redeemer staff and leaders on Friday afternoon. He left us with many resources and big thoughts and ideas to wrestle through.
If you missed the talk on the 14th, or would like to pass it along to friends, it's available online, here.

How to talk to your kids about race (by Jemar Tisby and The Atlantic)
Be in prayer as we think through the changes we can make in our own lives to be a more welcoming church and more understanding of our neighbors. What are some things you can do to make those kind of changes in your own life? How have you been challenged recently to live out the gospel in light of racial justice?
Let's not let this just be a blip on our screens, but a catalyst of change in our city.
