Disrupting racism through our relationships

BridgeBuilders is a group of people bound to each other through our love of Christ and our love for each other. Our group is made up of a variety of ages, races, and church affilations. We are committed to having hard conversations about race and race relations. We believe that we can be BridgeBuilders and show the world that change is possible, one friendship at a time.
We believe racism is disrupted by relationship.
We believe Christ calls us to be a part of that disruption.
We believe in each other, and we believe in love.

On Thursday evenings, twice a month we join together via Zoom for Biblical study on disrupting racism through faith, action, and growing relationships with each other. During the summer we host meet up events and will begin our next study in August 2022.

Suggested Resources

Below is the list of books our BridgeBuilders group has studied so far. No matter where you are at in your journey to help end racism, these resources include extremely helpful tools for growth!

Black and White: Disrupting Racism One Friendship at a Time

By John Hambrick and Teesha Hard
The core message of Black and White is this: racism can be disrupted by relationships. If you will risk forging friendships with those who do not look like you, it will change the way you see the world, and that could change the world.

Be the Bridge

By Latasha Morrison
With conviction and grace, Latasha Morrison examines the historical complexities of racism. She expertly applies biblical principles, such as lamentation, confession, and forgiveness, to lay the framework for restoration.

The Genesis of Antiracism: Discovering a Theology of Antiracism from the First Book of the Bible

By Rev. Montana Hamby
Antiracism is not just a buzz word in the current news cycle. We can find evidence of antiracist theology in the earliest of scriptures. Learning how God created the world through a lens of antiracism helps us establish our own theology of love.

When We Stand: The Power of Seeking Justice Together

By Terrence Lester
By connecting with our neighbors and discovering our own paths of service, we can drastically change how we follow Christ and see God moving in the world. Togetherness and community give visible testimony of the power of the gospel.

Let's work together to end racism.

"Racism, manifested as sin, plagues and hinders our relationship with Christ, inasmuch as it is antithetical to the gospel itself. … We commit as the Church to move beyond symbolic expressions and representative models that do not challenge unjust systems of power and access."

UMC Social Principles

"As United Methodists, we cannot send our thoughts and prayers without moving our hands and feet... Among the hardest places to address racism is within ourselves."

Rev. Brian Tillman, Director of Inclusion and Advocacy,  North Georgia Annual Conference of the UMC

"For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it."

- Amanda Gorman, National Youth Poet Laureate
