BIBLICAL UNITY IN A FRAGMENTED WORLD: Is Critical Race Theory the Answer?
Saturday, March 20, 2021 - Sunday, March 21, 2021
A defining issue of our day is the issue of social justice. The purpose of this weekend conference on Biblical Unity is to examine and explain some of the worldview assumptions that drive the secularized view on social justice in contrast with what the gospel says. Participants will explore together how Critical Race Theory (CRT) has influenced race conversations in media, law, healthcare, education and even the church, all in the name of racial justice – a subset of Social Justice – and where it strays from biblical truth.
This two day special event hosted by Community Fellowship will include:
Saturday 20th – 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. – An overview of what CRT is, why it is incompatible with the gospel and how the church can navigate a culture increasingly influenced by it.
Sunday 21st – 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. – The biblical foundations for pursuing unity in the Church across all racial and ethnic lines and practical ways to go about it.
The end goal is to be able to look at this issue through a biblical lens and to be challenged to think critically and carefully about issues that we interface with frequently.
Each session will allow ample time for Q & A and interaction with our guest presenters:
You will find this training beneficial if you are a:
- church staff, elder, deacon, lay leader – trying to make sense of the current cultural complexities.
- church member – seeking awareness and biblical instruction to current cultural events.
- person wanting to progress in relationship with others from a different race.
- person experiencing race-related trauma, and want to take steps toward healing.
- person wanting to have productive race conversations with friends and family.
