Atlanta has been and continues to be marked both by racial division and an arc towards reconciliation. We love our city and its people, and we desire to be a church that speaks honestly about this division while also pursuing reconciliation. To that end, we recently hosted a two-part Conversation on Race where Ashley Mathews joined by our good friend Darryl Ford, pastor of Ikon Community Church, discussed the often omitted parts of our American story, as well as how race has shaped our experiences.
In part one, Ashley and Darryl examined the origins of racial division in America. They then considered how our faith might compel and equip us to address those divisions.
In part two, they looked at how we might move past some of the common barriers to interracial community with the hope of modeling reconciliation, both in and outside the walls of Trinity.
