Love Your Neighbor:  A Christian’s Response to Racism

What is the Christian response to racism?  What does God say about this?  What was and is the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod’s response to racism?  This small group will study and reflect on the history of racism in the United States, how that history is reflected in today’s world, and what our response should be.  Various sources will be used including the Bible, the LCMS’s 1994 Commission on Theology and Church Relations Report, and various books and articles.
