Racial Reconciliation, the Church, and Trayvon Martin


How the Church in Sanford, FL promoted racial healing after the Trayon Martin shooting:



"Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
"


Matthew 5:9

Highlights:
  • Jackie Robinson wasn't allowed to play in Sanford.
  • 100 homicides every two months in Chicago without a peep from the Black community.
  • It isn't a Black and White thing, it isn't a race thing; it's a sin thing.
  • "God has called you to be radical ambassadors for peace."
  • The first thing the Church needs to do is pray.
