Season’s Greetings: Season’s Finale & Safe Places (w/ Jasmine Holmes)

by | Dec 27, 2017

Overview:

“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.”

Psalm 9:1-2

In the season finale, Trillia Newbell and Isaac Adams reflect on the first season of United? We Pray, and they speak with Jasmine Holmes about safe places. In the race conversation, at times, someone will say something unhelpful or downright racist, and if their statement is met with correction, they’ll respond by saying, “I thought you were a safe place.”

Jasmine, Trillia, and Isaac reflect on the need to redefine the concept of a “safe place.” What does it look like to speak the truth and love, and hear the truth in love? How can Christians be honest with one another and yet extend heaps and heaps of grace to each other, as God has extended that grace to us in Christ? Trillia and Isaac continue to reflect on that grace as they look back on the episodes and start of Season 1 of United? We Pray.

As we reflect on God’s goodness, we have to say thank you! Thank you to Karl Magnuson, producer of United? We Pray. Thank you to Dante Stewart, social media manager of United? We Pray. Thank you to Thern Newbell and Megan Adams, wonderful spouses to Trillia and Isaac. Thank you to all the listeners who joined us for Season 1 of United? We Pray, and most of all, thanks be to the Lord Jesus Christ—our savior, Lord, and peace. To him be the glory now and forever, amen.

  • United? We Pray

    United? We Pray is a ministry to help Christians pray and think about racial strife. We want to encourage Christians amid the strife to rely upon God in prayer. So our prayers can be informed, we strive to learn and write about race, racism and its effects, and theology. We aim to be biblical, beneficial, and clear in all our efforts. While we’re burdened for all racial strife, we focus on racial strife between Christians because of the unique privilege and stewardship God has given his people: to bear witness to Him and to love all people, especially one another (Gal. 6:10).
