RESOURCES

Our team has individually and as a group reviewed many books, videos, and resources. We also know our community here at the Fearless Family of Churches and the resources that would best serve to meet members where they are. We have primarily selected resources that (1) individuals from our team had reviewed personally, (2) are accessible for those new to the conversation about racism and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion); (3) that will assist in helping members already on their journey with understanding racism grow deeper; and (4) that align with the Biblical principles that our church adheres to. We have also selected some resources that are not from a Biblical perspective but which — in our estimation — provide helpful insights into other cultures and people that will help members learn about the experiences of those different from themselves.
