Who is Discipling You on Race?

Isaac and Austin are joined in the studio by Josh Chatman, Jared Torrence, DeMyron Haynes, and John Talley. As we were sitting around and talking with the mics off, someone asked the question, “who do you think is discipling most people on race, and what role does the pastor play in that?” So, we fired up the mics and talked about it. We hope you are encouraged and hope that church is a place where you feel free to talk about race.
