Since the news of white supremacists openly marching in Charlottesville, my social media timelines have been filled with people decrying racism and white supremacy. I hope yours have been too.
But let us not only express our shock at the sins of others, but also check our own hearts. What racial stereotypes have we bought into? Who do we subconsciously view through a lens of disdain? Where have we failed to see people as being made in the image of God?
May our horror of racism cause us to work to uproot the subtle tendrils of racism in our own hearts. This is what will bring real change that lasts far beyond this brief news cycle.
