How the Church Can Lead Efforts in Reconciliation and Justice

Woke Church
An Urgent Call for Christians in America to Confront Racism and Injustice
(Moody, 2018)

WHO: Eric Mason, founder and pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia.

HE SAYS: “What needs to happen in the body if we are going to work together cross-ethnically is that white Christians must reach across the color line and begin to respect and trust minorities. Minorities must respond with open arms and hearts to these efforts.”

THE BIG IDEA: The church should be leading racial reconciliation and championing justice.

THE PROGRESSION:
Part 1, “Be Aware,” shows readers how God created all of us to be in one family because he has made us holy.
Part 2, “Be Willing to Acknowledge,” discusses racial realities that the church, which as an advocate of justice, should lament. Part 3, “Be Accountable,” explores reclaiming our prophetic voice and casts a vision for what real and lasting change should look like.
The book wraps up with Part 4, “Be Active.” In this section, the author talks about what the “woke” church in action looks like keeping the End Times in mind.

“Justice has to be done, not merely dialogued about.”
