Why We Can't Wait

Why We Can't Wait, by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will be the next book in our study on the Christian Response to Racism in America. Telling oppressed communities to wait..."wait until the pandemic is over," or "wait until the economy stabilizes," or  "wait until we can give this our full attention," or "wait until X," is a a convenient but sincere stalling tactic of those have the privilege in being able to "wait." But if you are in the camp of those who need the change, waiting means enduring injustice beyond endurance. Rev. Dr. King Jr. why waiting is no longer an option.

Racism is our Country's original sin, according to Jim Wallis. It is systemically woven into our culture that privileges caucasians and disadvantages other ethnic groups. Why do white people find it so difficult to talk about racism? How might having the difficult conversations change the systems of privilege? 


Join us as Brian Nelson-Munson leads us through Robin DiAngelo's book, "White Fragility: Why it is so hard for white people to talk about racism."
