From Lost Cause to Found Cause: Christian Responses to Racist Symbols and Histories.
We’ll also discuss what a “Christian” response to these issues might look like and how that response might be different (and yet complimentary to) other liberal and progressive responses. Are Confederate symbols powerful, pathetic or both? Are they perpetuators of cultural trauma, symptoms of cultural trauma or both? Can Christians embody a ministry of reconciliation around these issues? Can mercy triumph over justice? Can American communities create new cultural approaches that celebrate diversity and inclusion, while also celebrating the best of what the past passed on?
