WE RAISE BOOK CLUB
We seek to be continually learning about the issues our communities are facing in order to serve those around us. The We Raise Book Club reflects our commitment to raising up issues and leaders. Regularly, our book club will feature and give away copies of books we find relevant to our focus areas.
PLEASE NOTE: We acknowledge that there are a wide variety of opinions and responses to the issues our communities are facing. We believe that a posture of learning requires an open mind and a willingness to engage with ideas and opinions different from your own. While our team does have criteria for featured books, inclusion of a book in the We Raise Book Club does not imply endorsement of the author or their opinions.
Gracism: The Art of Inclusion
When people deal with color, class or culture in a negative way, that’s racism. But the answer is not to ignore these as if they don’t matter. Instead, we can look at color, class and culture in a positive way. That’s gracism.
Pastor David Anderson responds to prejudice and injustice with the principle of gracism: radical inclusion for the marginalized and excluded. Building on the apostle Paul’s exhortations in 1 Corinthians 12 to honor the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of ethnicity, class or other social distinction. He offers seven sayings of the gracist with practical examples for building bridges and including others.
A Christian alternative to secular models of affirmative action or colorblindness, Gracism is an opportunity to extend God’s grace to people of all backgrounds.
Registration for the March 2021 Book Club will close on March 31, 2021.
