Join us as Pastor Carl leads a class and conversation about American church theologies and their past and present relationship to issues of race. We will┬átalk about theologies that claim biblical warrant for race theories, including theories of racial superiority, and we will talk about “personal-salvation” and “salvation-as-afterlife-only” theologies that do not address issues of communal sin and redemption, the fallenness and redemption of interconnected humanity and every facet of its civilizations, and the brokenness and re-creation of the world and everything in it. We also will touch on histories of American churches that have contributed to and stood against race-based oppression, as well as the phenomenon of racially bounded churches, including “Asian American” churches.
