Starting the Conversation

This is a list of resources to help you begin this conversation.

Whether you are an adult, teenager, or child, I hope this compilation allows you to feel supported in engaging in what can be an uncomfortable topic. Now is not the time to bury our heads in the sand and wait for this to pass. Instead, it is a time to embrace our Christian faith and the duties that come with it.

  • The alien who resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:33-34
  • Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.  Amos 5:23-24
  • He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
  • [Jesus] unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
    Luke 4:17b-19
  • But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.
    Ephesians 2:13-14
