Thoroughly Equipped Season 2 Episode 36

Latasha Morrison made the New York Times Best Seller list for her book Be The Bridge. While the book informs Christians of the importance of racial reconciliation, it’s also the gateway into her training program/ministry of the same name. To become a Bridge Builder, we are told to follow the Be the Bridge Face Book group. In signing up for the group ALL members are required to silently observe the conversation in the group and do the REQUIRED reading of the guides before commenting and entering into the conversation.

Today I will present to you their first required reading for white people titled Be the Bridge 101: Foundational Principals Every White Bridge Builder Needs to Know and the first 2 tenants of Whiteness, white people must learn about so they can start leveraging their whiteness; identify their white heritage, divest themselves of their pride, privilege, & fragility, and fight against white supremacy as ani-racists.

Topics include:

    • What is the Be the Bridge Ministry?
    • Should white Christians identify with their white heritage to reconcile and unify with POC?
    • Is privilege a sin?
    • What is oppression and how do we fight it according to Scripture?
    • We look at some of the privileges Be the Bridge says white people have. Are they actual privileges based on race?

May this episode bless you and bring glory to God!
