Open and faithful to the inclusive and reconciling gospel

From “The False White Gospel: Rejecting Christian Nationalism, Reclaiming True Faith, and Refounding Democracy” by Jim Wallis

The truth telling about racial justice and reconciliation that we now need will, indeed, cost some pastors their jobs and pensions and parsonages; and it will lead to other pastors and leaders of predominantly white churches losing significant numbers of their congregants. A yet unknown number of white Christian leaders will find the courage to stand up while others submit to the “cheap grace” that Bonhoeffer warned against.  There will be churches that stay open and faithful to the inclusive and reconciling gospel, despite the loss of some of their members, and new members – especially young people – may join them because of their authenticity and courage.
