There is no amount of protesting, no amount of legislation, no removal of statues, and no amount of reparations that can mend the wound short of the gospel. The only solution for racism is God's solution—it's in the gospel of Jesus.
The unrest, hate, and division we see in our world is cry for help. It's a cry for hope. But there is no legislation, no erasure of history, or admittance of privilege that will satisfy our culture's longing for goodness, truth, and beauty. Only the Gospel can do that.
It is my aim to talk about the Word every chance we get, encourage my kids to read—even if they don't fully understand—ask questions and pursue more than just knowledge of the Word but of the Word Himself.
I needed my kids to see something greater. I needed them to lose something to gain something. What might seem confusing, frustrating, even unfair at times, may be the very thing we need the most. I wanted my kids to experience something far more important.
Our goal is to seek support for the next 18-24 months. This will provide the initial funding, create key partnerships, and solidify new projects—all of which will help fund the ministry for years to come.
