We live in a beautifully diverse world. Unfortunately, our world is also plagued by racial and ethnic division.
As families, we can bring unity and change by embracing our differences. But it requires that we pass onto our kids what it means to walk in love, not fear—a lesson that’s easier said, than done.
In this episode, author Trillia Newbell, sits down with us to discuss:
- How to talk to our kids about families who look different from ours
- Whether or not we should raise our kids to be “color blind”
- What it looks like for us as adults to model unity and love in our home
- How we should talk to our kids about the history of racial tensions
- And most importantly, how the gospel transcends racial and ethnic differences
