Four Things I Learned About Racism in One Book of the Bible

Our global health pandemic may be from a novel coronavirus, but there is nothing new about our national pride epidemic. The death of George Floyd represents yet another precious life lost because of the sin of racism. A sin that’s been around for a very long time. I have always had a sensitivity to the
