Mark Vroegop discusses the challenge of racial reconciliation and how the biblical practice of lament offers Christians from different backgrounds a common language for productive, God-honoring conversation. He shares from his own experiences walking alongside and learning from minority culture Christians, recounted the time that God opened his eyes to his own blindness while sitting in the office of an African-American pastor, and offered a response to those who wonder if the evangelical church in America will ever make real progress on these issues.
Mark Vroegop is the author of Weep with Me: How Lament Opens a Door for Racial Reconciliation coming in July 2020.
