Dear Discipleship-first Friends,
We are asking a few disciple making leaders to describe how they disciple people on race.
Ben Barnett is a lead pastor of Bridge Pointe Church in Atlanta.
I just completed my doctoral thesis entitled “Breaking the Silence: Courageous Conversations about Race and Reconciliation in the Local Church.” A primary part of my research entailed a series of conversations with a group of adult black and white disciples, of varying ages, that sat down for a series of conversations on race.
These conversations, and others, which focus on racial concerns bring many to this simple question: What do I do? For a disciple of Jesus, this is the perfect question.
