A.D.A France Williams' book Ghost Ship: Institutional Racism and the Church of England has blown open the discussion on why a religion based on the teachings of love by a Jewish Palestinian from the first century has become steeped in discrimination against black and brown people.
In this episode I got the pleasure of unpacking the main message of his writing. We discuss what racial inequality in the Church of England looks like, why the Church has failed black people and look at real life experiences of discrimination. We delve into the past to see what happened to get us to where we are today including how some people have used the Bible to justify racism. We discuss the need to reclaim the brown skinned Jesus for the 21st Century and why attempts to rid the Chuirch of racism has failed.
An important conversation and a challenge to ALL Christians, and humans today.
