In light of the anti-CRT report that has caused so much division, the Board has a chance to change.
I hope that one day the American church of the majority will let go of the very American sin of racism. May God continue to use the voices of people who speak out to break through the stubborn refusal to love one another as Christ himself loves us.
The Board of GCC should open their meeting with the reading of several scriptures that tell us that we are all created in God’s image, and that we are commanded to love our neighbors and our brothers. Jesus put no limit on who is our neighbor and who is our brother. Skin color is not mentioned in the Bible as an exception to these commands. Is GCC a Christian school? Does it follow the teachings of Jesus? It is it Christian in name only?
From your website:
“FORTIFYING OUR COMMUNITY
“Grove City College’s Christ-centered chapel services are a central part of a student’s spiritual development. Chapel services seek to challenge all students in their love of God and neighbor and to demonstrate how the Gospel of Jesus Christ applies to all areas of life, from academics to friendships. Our chapel services include corporate worship, biblical preaching, and Christian testimony.”
Please quantify specifically, point by point, how Dr. Tisby’s chapel talk does not serve to fortify the Grove City community in exactly the ways described above.
Thank you, Dr. Tisby! Our hearts break with your's and so many others that have and continue to suffer injustices from my fellow white evangelical Christians. The syncretism between Christianity and conservative politics is so clearly evidenced in this unjust situation at GCC. May the power, love, and justice of Christ break through this blindness and fear. We stand with you and support you, including subscribing. Much love & grace to you, our brother!
