We at Lakepoint affirm the image of God and inherent dignity of all people regardless of ethnicity, and believe that the church should lead the way in love and reconciliation to every area of racism.
OUR MESSAGE ON RACE
OUR RECOMMENDED READING
The Third Option: Hope for a Racially Divided Nation by Miles McPherson
He’ll talk to you like he’s your pastor and lead you through his multiracial background to a Jesus-centered outlook on race.
His faith-filled personal story of applying the love of Jesus to civil rights. Recommended on Audible as they include actual recordings of his speeches.
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
Her narrative approach helps you experience the painfully difficult transition from Jim Crow racism.
Lakepoint Church partnered with Brian McKee in 2016 to plant City of Light as a multiethnic church for Wauwatosa. We highly recommend the multiethnic events he hosts through his organization, We Race Ahead. Most specifically we’d encourage you to follow his September Sermon Series on Race and participate in the 4-Week Multiethnic Zoom Discussion Groups beginning September 13th.
Kurt is a new friend of Lakepoint that we’re jumping in with. There’s great opportunities to join him in neighborhood revitalization on his monthly “Serve Saturday” through Bridge Builders, or participate in virtual learning through Milwaukee Declaration. Kurt is a pastor and church planter, ready to open the doors of Uflourish Church as soon as Covid-19 lifts.
