The events of recent months have laid bare the pervasive stain of racism in public life. Christina Edmondson talks with John Witvliet about developing a lifelong commitment to learning about what race and racism are, how to critically and theologically discern issues of social stratification and a caste system which feed the sin of racism, and how Christians can remain rooted in the good news of Jesus and actively respond in ways that dismantle racism, especially in congregations and worshiping communities.
