We need to talk about race. The Bible's prayers of lament show us the way.

Stories of racial injustice fill our news feeds. Yet for too long many of us in the church have been hesitant to speak up and give voice to addressing racism in its many forms. We fear offending others, using the wrong words, not knowing what to say.

In Lamenting Racism, a team of leading pastors and theologians come together to lay the groundwork for important conversations about racism in your congregation. Through their conversations in six thought-provoking videos, they name that God's people of every race are called to confront racism in every way possible. Together this team invites each of us to consider and give voice to how we have been shaped and formed by race.

Calling on us to reclaim the lost art of biblical lament, these pastors and theologians model a powerful way to pour out the fear, shame, grief, and rage of racism in prayer. In the process, we will be transformed, reclaiming hope for a world shaped by God's inclusive vision of love and blessing.

This six-session study invites church groups to learn the practice of biblical lament as a powerful tool in the church's struggle against racism.

This book accompanies a six-session video series available for purchase from MennoMedia.
