Let's talk about race in children's ministry. We are living in a critical time in American history where racism had captured our attention like it hasn't done in decades. With the death of George Floyd and others, our collective conscience has been shocked and rocked like never before. We have to talk to each other. We have to listen to each other. Because the ugly truth that is being uncovered is not only is there racism in our culture, but it's also in the Church! If it's in the church, is it also in children's ministry?
So please listen to this conversation from my two friends who are highly qualified leaders in African American denominations, Ricardo Miller, and Angela Marks.
The heartbreaking reality is coming to the surface, that racism in the Church has been deep and wide in both Evangelical and Pentecostal circles for far too long. So we have to ask ourselves, "Is there racism in children's ministry, and if there is what does it look like? And how do we overcome it?"
Please listen and take notes. Let's finally get this right!
