95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #22

“For true dialogue to take place, many white churches are going to have to come to grips with their selective piety concerning social and political agendas. Dialogue does not mean that all of us will come to the same conclusions about methods to achieve justice or even particular issues on which we lay our emphasis, but it does demand that we humbly listen to what our dialogue partners have to say.”

Craig Keener, “The Gospel and Racial Reconciliation,” in The Gospel in Black and White: Theological Resources for RacialReconciliation, ed. Dennis Okholm (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 1996), 129.
