Be the Bridge
Do you live by the motto Love God, Love Others, yet desire more practical ways to DO so?
In Be the Bridge, we seek to understand ourselves, learn about others, and bring the peace and unity of Christ to our community, specifically across racial lines. We will read and discuss a chapter of the book each week and accompany it with prayer and worship.
The group meets Monday evenings at 6 at the Fondia’s. We will share dinner together. Kids are welcome. You will need to purchase your own copy of the book or order through Laura. Cost: $10 on Amazon.
Here is a description of the book Be the Bridge by Latasha Morrison:
“In an era where we seem to be increasingly divided along racial lines, many are hesitant to step into the gap, fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing. At times the silence, particularly within the church, seems deafening. But change begins with an honest conversation among a group of Christians willing to give a voice to unspoken hurts, hidden fears, and mounting tensions. These ongoing dialogues have formed the foundation of a global movement called Be the Bridge—a nonprofit organization whose goal is to equip the church to have a distinctive and transformative response to racism and racial division.
In this perspective-shifting book, founder Latasha Morrison shows how you can participate in this incredible work and replicate it in your own community. With conviction and grace, she examines the historical complexities of racism. She expertly applies biblical principles, such as lamentation, confession, and forgiveness, to lay the framework for restoration.
Along with prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement, Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder—committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel.”
