Dr. John M. Perkins

Lent Focus - One Blood: Talking Race & Love with John M. Perkins

From John M. Perkins – a missionary to communities of poverty and evangelical civil rights activist – we’ll learn about God’s plan for unity and reconciliation among people divided by cultural differences, including those based on skin color. We’ll explore how the Christian practices of lament, confession, forgiveness, and repentance can bring diverse people together in the love of Christ, and we’ll be challenged to be prayerful and courageous in pursuing God’s vision for reconciled humanity.


Based on Dr. Perkins’ book One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race & Love (Moody Publishers, 2018).
