Like it or not we are living through a time where issues of continued racism in Canada and the U.S. have come to the fore. The church cannot turn a blind eye to it or simply wish that everyone would just get along. We are the body of Christ, so we are called to live out the truth of the kingdom of God. We are to be ambassadors of reconciliation. But, peace doesn’t mean not talking about the problem. It means working to eliminate the divisions in the body and the world.
