When you first meet someone of another race, what's the first thing that comes to mind? If it is a racial stereotype, what do you say next? In this Place for Grace video, Sophia offers insight into this question from her own experiences of racial stereotypes, then makes suggestions of what can help, rather than hurt in such situations.
Our P4G videos each feature a person sharing the world through their eyes, giving us the chance to learn a little about what it is like to be them, and what helps and hurts with some of the struggles they face. In everything, we hope to grow in understanding about each other, and learn how to live and work together to share God's love and grace--in hopes of making the world a better place.
We hope that these stories and the questions that follow will encourage discussion and thoughtfulness about the people and situations in your own life.
As always, we appreciate feedback (send to: firstname.lastname@example.org); which helps us grow better. Also, if you would like to see about sharing your own story with us, please contact us through the email below.
