Guest: Daniel Hill
How pervasive is white supremacy? How offended were you when you just read that last sentence? It's so pervasive that it's considered the baseline and that is part of our problem. How we does the Church and our culture learn to embrace theologies that aren't inherently elevating "whiteness". We as a church and a society have to stop ignoring race but must further educate ourselves and then act in accordance with that.
Daniel Hill is the founding and senior pastor of River City Community Church, a vibrant, multiethnic church in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. He is the author of 10:10: Life to the Fullest and White Awake
