Beginning next week, I will have a wonderful dialog with Nicole Unice about racial reconciliation under the backdrop of the movie, ‘The Help.’
My review of the movie is posted at Her.meneutics, the Christianity Today blog for women.
Foundational Scriptures on which we will build our discussion:
“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciled the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God (2 Corin 16-20 NIV).”
Go see the movie this weekend and join the conversation next week.
Or you can share your thoughts now if you have already read the book or seen the movie.
Blessings, Natasha Robinson
