This week, Blessing, Eric, and Jeremy welcome back Phil to the podcast as we dive into this week's most pressing topic: racism.We understand and believe this topic is very important and in no way is this a full survey of what we are experiencing in America right now. We simply want to help the Church to start talking about these things. At the end of the day, three of our four podcasters in this episode are white. So while this may help you start thinking about these issues, we highly recommend you seek out other voices that are much better at breaking this down than us.
