Beyond Colorblind

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

–Ephesians 4:1-6

At Willamette Christian, Beaverton Christian, and Hope City we are committed to empowering those affected by the forces of racial injustice and pressing into this issue in ways that God will use to transform our hearts and the people we encounter. No matter what ethnicity you are, we hope the resources below can help to foster new ideas and conversations as we lock arms to make a difference in our community.

Beyond Colorblind


Our entire elder and staff teams are currently reading through Beyond Colorblind by Sarah Shin. We've found her work to be inspiring and challenging, and believe it will do the same for you!

In her book, Sarah explains the importance of ethnicity awareness from a biblical perspective. How can we make disciples of every nation if we don't know how to speak in the language of their heart? Take a look at her book trailer, and consider purchasing a copy at the link below on Amazon or other major book retailers.
