On Part 3 of our special 4 part series on Church and Patriotism Sam and Paul talk about Biblical examples of protest as demonstrated through the lives and actions of men and women in the Bible and how they help us understand how to live this out today.
NOTE - We talk a bit about a man named Nicodemus but in reality got his name mixed up with another man by the name of Zaccheus. It is Zaccheus we were discussing and not Nicodemus.
Brian, Sam and Paul discuss the practicality of multi-ethnic churches.
God's people come from all nations, ethnic groups and cultures in a beautiful display of the power of God to redeem broken people and restore us to community with each other and Him.
Living this out together takes effort and understanding on our part to live out this calling of community.
On this episode of Starting the Conversation we join The Example Project's Sam Mathews, Brian Higgins and Paul Lawrence as they discuss why conversation matters, the ways in which we do it poorly as well as discuss future episode topics for Starting the Conversation.
In this episode The Example Project's Brian Higgins and Paul Lawrence discuss a recent quote from Oscar Robertson in which the Big O asked where are all the white athletes in regards to a speaking up for justice and the oppressed.
Brian and Paul in turn ask this question of themselves but also the church in general when it comes to listening and conversing with our minority brothers and sisters, but also all who are experiencing hurt in our churches.
