Day 1: How can we have right relationships with others without affirming the image of God in them, without seeking to love others as God loves us?

Relationships are a process that we must continue to do, correcting mistakes and seeking to improve each day. Discipleship and anti-racism are similar. That is why we seek to become anti-racist disciples. We need to remind ourselves of who we are; we are disciples of Jesus and discipleship calls upon us to be anti-racist. To do this we need to constantly reflect on our words, actions, and attitudes.

As part of your 40 Days of Engagement on Anti-Racism journey, join Paul Douglas Walfall as he explores what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Read his reflection in the Downloads, below.
