Racism

So many forms, so many challenges! In Canada, our racial diversity is a strength and it is also our challenge. Christians of all colours and cultures need to understand and learn what it means to “live in one accord.” The CRC in Canada has spent much time in developing ways for us to grow in this area. Here are some practical tools for your church to confront racism.
