Racism, white supremacy & Black Lives Matter – George Yancey & Drew Hart

Anti-racism theologian Dr Drew Hart and Christian sociologist Dr George Yancey discuss their different perspectives on racism, 'white fragility' and Black Lives Matter in the wake of the George Floyd protests, and what role the church can play in racial reconciliation.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis
