Off the RACE Track: From Color-Blind to Color-Kind, with Steve Simms - EM250

By Bryan Entzminger

Through Christ, all walls of division have been torn down. Believers from every tribe and tongue are united by the blood of Jesus. A former Engaging Missions guest, Steve Simms, comes to talk about racial reconciliation. As ministers of reconciliation, we are called to bring healing where there has been injustice and brokenness. Steve shares about his new book called Off the Race Track, which helps believers know how to be color kind. He also tells stories about how he came to care about this issue. He provides lessons from his time pastoring a multiracial church.  Full Show Notes: http://engagingmissions.com/250 Steve's Book: https://amzn.to/2WD6gQS Become a Patron: https://engagingmissions.com/patron What We Talked About 00:24 - Episode summary 01:31 - Longing to see reconciliation 03:10 - What does it mean to be color kind? 05:19 - Taking the first step 06:43 - Finding ways to understand others 08:10 - Approaching a different culture 11:07 - Beginning to interact on a personal level 13:45 - How did you pursue knowledge on the issues? 16:04 - Grasping the history of racial division 18:01 - What can we do to repair the problems? 19:16 - For the pastors seeking a Revelation congregation 21:50 - The many meanings of diversity 23:35 - Representing every tribe and tongue 26:10 - Pastoring a diverse church 28:50 - Where to start 31:46 - One person can change the world 33:55 - How can we best pray for you? 38:05 - How YOU can be involved in the Engaging Missions Show Resources & Contact Info Off the RACE Track: From Color-Blind to Color-Kind Show Links Facebook: @engagingmissions Messenger: @engagingmissions Twitter: @engagingmission Leave a Voicemail Become a Patron Listen for Free Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links in the post above are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission.
