Getting at the root of racism

Many of us probably haven’t been subjected to racism. So we haven’t actually experienced the fear and injustice engendered by it.  But all those who desire to love God more, and to love others universally as children of God, can contribute through prayer to the lessening, and eventual dissolution, of racism. Because we are all children of the one God, this must and will happen someday.

There are various issues bound up in this insidious attitude—issues of justice, safety, and the freedom to live one’s life to its full potential, all of which affect people in various parts of the world. But as important as these are, there’s a deeper need to get at the root of racism, which is where consecrated prayer plays a vital role.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
