Repentance, Racial Healing & Reconciliation, Radical Love

One Tribe returns to the important topic of white privilege.  This week’s contributor is Rev. Drew Yamamoto, a friend and colleage in ministry.  Drew serves as the Supervisor for Missions in Asia and the Pacific for our denomination, the Reformed Church in America.  As a Japanese American who travels extensively, Drew comments that he often feels “without culture” and that he seems not to fit in 100% anywhere. Sadly, this may actually hinder him more than it helps.  He’s certainly seen white privilege in action, and he knows first-hand what it feels like not to benefit from it.

One Tribe is a weekly forum dedicated to open discussion of racial healing. It appears each Monday.  Contributors represent many walks of life, but have in common these foundational beliefs: (1) racism is sin; (2) only the power of Christ through the Holy Spirit can break racism’s grip and heal people and relationships; and (3) as Christians, racial healing and reconciliation are part of God’s call upon our lives.  The good news of the gospel is that all are one in Christ (Gal 3:28). May it be so!

All who hold to the above defined beliefs about racism are invited to write for One Tribe.  Please email Angie at revmabrynauta@gmail.com to express interest in contributing and for additional information.
