An orienting resource commissioned by Bishop L. Jonathan Holston through The Cabinet of the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church

This resource is designed to provide tools to address racism through a response of love, education, communication and scriptural background while working together as the body of Christ. These tools are intended to help groups learn about the history of racism in our nation, how to listen and hear often-difficult personal stories, and how to lead discussions that will form and strengthen relationships. It is intended to be helpful in the process of healing in our churches and communities, viewing all as equal human beings. May it be a resource through which God works within each of us in South Carolina and beyond.

This resource was prayerfully and deliberately designed to facilitate open conversations about race and racism. Therefore, some of the content – words, images and videos – is direct and might be disturbing for some.
