2018 Summer Dialogues in Theology

"The Gospel vision & Racial Reconciliation"

“I believe that if the Reformed community in America in the 19th and 20th century had simply applied the second Commandment, we would be in a very different place than we are today in terms of racial tensions.” - Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO of the Reformed Theological Seminary system

This year’s Summer Dialogues in Theology will study Dr. John M. Perkins’ book “One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race" (available for purchase on the book table).

Dr. Perkins is a leading civil rights activist today. He grew up in a Mississippi sharecropping family, was an early pioneer of the civil rights movement, and has dedicated his life to the cause of racial equality. In “One Blood,” Dr. Perkins speaks honestly to the church about reconciliation, discipleship, justice and what it really takes to live out biblical reconciliation.

The racial reconciliation of our churches and nation won't be done with big campaigns or through mass media. It will come one loving, sacrificial relationship at a time. The gospel and all that it encompasses has always traveled best relationally. We have much to learn from each other and each have unique poverties that can only be filled by one another. The way forward is to become "wounded healers" who bandage each other up as we discover what the family of God really looks like. Real relationships, sacrificial love between actual people, is the way forward. Nothing less will do.  - From the publisher
