June 6, 13, & 20th: Reparations, Repentance and Redemption Series – Riverside Church
– Does our Christian faith compel us to support reparations for the descendants of enslaved people?
– While politicians and pundits argue over the policy and economic impact, they miss the theological implication: does God present America with reparations as an opportunity to repent for centuries of race slavery?
– Do reparations offer at least a step toward the national redemption that will begin to heal the racism that divides the nation and tempts millions to turn to authoritarian leaders?
This three-session speaker series will open Riverside’s discussion of these compelling theological, ethical and political questions.
