A Conversation on Race, the Gospel, & the Church

This past week I had the honor of sitting down with my good friend Omar Thornton. Omar is the head chef and co-owner of the O So Good restaurant in Garretson, SD (and soon to be in Lennox, SD). We had a very candid and open conversation on race, the Gospel, and what the (white) church needs to desperately hear from our brothers and sisters of different skin colors and ethnicities.

We talk about Black Lives Matter, the problem with seeking to be “colorblind” in regards to race, the ways Christianity has been used to bolster and support slavery/racism, and the work of Malcolm X (among many many other topics). This is a longer conversation but it is well worth your time.
