There's a new Lutheran resource about racism!
In 2018, The Northwest District of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS) passed a resolution at their convention that called for a task force to be assembled that would study the district's relationship with communities of color and offer solutions. That study led the task force to create a new toolkit, called "Speaking the Truth in Love," to help congregations respond faithfully and compassionately to those who have been hurt by the sin of racism.
"Listen to these stories and take them to heart," said Dr. Paul Linnemann, President of the Northwest District, commenting on the toolkit. "As you do so, consider how our Lord Jesus would have us respond to those who have been hurt."
The toolkit comes with Bible Studies, accompanying videos, facilitator notes, and daily personal devotions.
