June 19, 1865

As we remember and celebrate that long awaited day, we look forward to a new day when all the ideals of freedom that our country aspires to are realized.

Speaking Series on Ethnic Conciliation: Rev. Todd Atkins — BridgeBuilders

"How should the Church respond to this brick wall moment? The pastor of Salem Institutional Baptist Church in South Dallas and President of the South Dallas-Fair Park Faith Coalition, Rev. Todd Atkins, answered this question and more in the first session of the BridgeBuilders Speaking Series on Ethnic Conciliation."

https://bridgebuilders.org/news/ethnic-conciliation

bridgebuilders.org How is the Church to respond? “All lives matter?” “Just preach the Gospel?” Or, do we stop, sympathize with our brothers and sisters, and consider the ways that Christ’s Church can pursue restorative justice?

Resources

Our staff has been putting together a list of resources that we believe will be helpful for those who are eager to learn more about the United State's present issues with race relations. As many have joined with their Black brothers and sisters as they cry out for justice, we would like to encourage those who desire to learn more about the systemic nature of these issues to engage with these resources.

As we state on the site, "We see it as our responsibility to educate everyone that we invite into this community, for the good of both the resident and the visitor. Through the outpouring of the love of Christ and all of its manifestations, we hope for mutual transformation. Please take a look at some of the resources listed below. We believe that this list is a good place to start. However, the best way to learn about this community is by building relationships."

We love you, BridgeBuilders family, and we are thankful for you.

"learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause." Isaiah 1:17 ESV

"...weep with those who weep." Romans 12:15b ESV

Cassandra Miller, mother of Jaylon and grandmother of Rory, recalled the ways that the Lord worked in this time when she said, 'You never know what may come about on this journey, but I have seen the handwriting of God in the midst of my family’s recovery, reconstruction, and his closeness to us throughout all of this. I have seen him working in my family all the way from January 5th to today.'"
