We live in a deeply divided world—but that’s not the blueprint God handed to us. Pastor, author, and former NFL player Dr. Derwin Gray shares how long ago, as far back as Abraham, God has been showing us the kind of community he wants for us: one filled with all ages, races, and cultures because we are more beautiful and stronger together.

 

Quotes

“Jesus of Nazareth created this community where Jews and Gentiles of all sorts were all of a sudden we're saying, ‘Jesus is Lord. And you're no longer my enemy. You're my brother, you're my sister, you're my family. And we have oneness in Christ.’” —Derwin Gray

“It takes a lot of security in Christ to have meaningful conversations with Jesus to bring us together, to not tear us apart.” —Derwin Gray

“We learn to listen. We learn to love and we learn to leverage our lives for each other. There is no greater love than this, then those who are willing to lay down their lives for their brothers and sisters. To heal the racial divide, it's going to require people who are serious about the gospel and who are serious about love.” —Derwin Gray
