Racial disharmony is tearing communities apart. But Jesus is the Great Reconciler, and we His Church are called to build cultural bridges and model unity. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Galatians 3:28)
On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Dr. David Ireland, who pastors a multi-ethnic church, describes how, through personal experience with persecution, God formed in him a heart for reconciliation. Dr. Ireland also shares some moving stories from his church about formerly racist people forgiving each other, and he explains how we can let go of our personal prejudices, have healthy cross-cultural friendships, and facilitate authentic reconciliation among others.
