Repentance, Racial Healing & Reconcilation, Radical Love
This week Rev. Paul Janssen courageously shares his personal journal of being born and raised in “one of the whitest states” in America; growing through racial reconciliation within himself; and loving and living in “mixedness”. Paul is my colleague in the Reformed Church in America. We have engaged in authentic conversations on a regular basis. I am confident you will appreciate Paul and his witness as much as I do.

One Tribe is a weekly forum dedicated to open discussion of racial reconciliation. Foundational beliefs of the forum are: (1) racism is sin; (2) only the power of Christ through the Holy Spirit can break racism’s grip on us and heal people and relationships; and (3) as Christians, racial reconciliation is part of God’s call upon our lives.
All who hold to these beliefs are invited to write for the forum. Please email Angie at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest in contributing and for additional information.
