Celebrating the first-ever National Day of Racial Healing

You can get more info about the National Day of Racial Healing, an initiative of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation with support from over 130 other organizations, on its website or with the hashtag .

  1. Thanks, April, for sending this — really cool. As it happens, Z and I are in the middle of a big discussion related to racial healing in our church right now. Not everyone agrees on the way to move forward, but that is a decent starting place, to my mind. Our work is cut out for us, no?
