On Behalf of Our Children: Wisconsin’s Racial Disparities and the Call of the Gospel

While the Gospel seems clear on the evil of racism, the church has not always lived up to the Gospel’s call. Four video presentations (called “scripts”) which provide historical, biblical, and theological discussions of the church and racism are now available. The first presentation gives a historical overview of the church’s record. The second shows how Jesus confronted the racism of his times. In the third, the author explains how theology has sometimes allowed racism to arise and develop. The final presentation offers a theological defense of nonviolent activism as the appropriate Christian response to racism. Each presentation is followed by discussion questions. These presentations can serve as the basis of a multi-week adult education class as a follow up to the use of On Behalf of our Children. More information in our Resource section.
