This is a space intended to support the work of racial justice and reconciliation. Within these pages I hope you will find great tools, meaningful conversations, and faithful collaborators who will walk beside you as we all seek the shalom of our communities.
This work was never meant to be done alone, and with the advent of this wonderful thing called the internet we can now reach far beyond our walls to embrace this work together. I love talking about the intersections of my race, gender and faith, but I am still learning, too. You may occasionally find more questions here than answers. I'm hoping we can figure out the answers together!
So, go ahead and poke around! Using the links at the top, you'll find my blog, bio, and a resource page with great tools for you! Before you leave, don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter, and head on over to Twitter and Facebook to keep in touch.
engaging hope, a hope that demands
Our commitment to racial justice and reconciliation requires we dig into the muddiness of humanity, reckoning with the worst of our humanity as we call out its best. This work is not for the faint of heart. It requires hope. Not a hope founded on good feelings or good intentions, but hope that demands. For our hope is risky, relentless, rooted in our certainty that love will win.

We're going on tour
There will be laughter. There will be truth-telling. There might even be tea-spilling. Join me and some of my favorite people, as we discuss the themes of my new book IM STILL HERE.

All events are free and open to the public! To learn more about dates and times, visit the Events page.
Discussion guide coming soon
Talking about race is always risky business. But we can do hard things. We can be courageous and take a chance that there are folks around us who are committed to learning too. I want to help. So stay tuned for a Discussion Guide, which will be released in early August. Gather your friends, your small group, your family, your friends around the table. Its time. Doing nothing is no longer an option. Make sure you come back for more updates and the free download.
