As people of God, we seek compassion through the lens of others' experience. We read their stories.

Challenged as a people of God to listen, lament, repent, and witness – we are called to thoughtfully engage the voices of those who are speaking profoundly about their own experience and practical steps forward. Below you will find texts, podcasts, and movies that the staff of Second Presbyterian Church have studied on the topics of race, racism, whiteness, activism, and faith. To sharpen and equip one another with resources along the journey of faith, we invite you into these stories. Please do reach out to the staff member who suggested the resource to learn more about the content and their experience with it. We are on this road together. Let us pray as we read to learn. Blessings as you continue to listen.
