Racial reconciliation takes work, and it’s work that needs doing. Amidst tragedies and protests in places like Ferguson, Boston, Charleston, and New York, Christians need to be salt and light, bearing the good news of 2 Corinthians 5:19: "In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. ”

And we can start where we spend most of our time: at our jobs.

In this newsletter we’ll hear how one man came to the conclusion that he needed to stick up for reconciliation. We'll be encouraged to seek the bridge-building love of God in all conflicts, even the most difficult ones. And we’ll be reminded that God sustains us at work when we suffer for his sake and for justice.

Let’s bring reconciliation to our troubled world. Read on.
