Your Antiracism Education Journey

Dan Berry – November 18, 2021

Hey Friends,

In our curriculum, What Lies Between Us we are all expected to do a little homework. As information is shared, as knowledge comes, and I like to say truth is revealed, it can be unsettling. When our world has settled into our limited understanding of things and new information is given, it can shake things up.

Every week we are challenged to reflect, rethink, and reach about the things we have learned during the course. This exercise can change your life. It is something most have laid down. It’s easier to go through the motions with little use of the 3 “R’s.”

Reflecting, thinking about, considering is a good thing. It can lead to questions. Those questions can lead you into rethink about what is going on in your life and around you.

Rethinking can lead you into a search for the truth, the answers that we wish we had. Jesus said if we knock it will be opened, if we seek we will find. Doing this will lead us all to answers, and it is in those answers that we will find the courage to REACH for or make the changes need in our lives and the communtities in which we live.

Don’t allow this world and it’s chaos to overwhelm you. Take time to learn — and in your learning begin to Reflect, Rethink, & Reach.
