BIBLE STUDIES for BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Share the Dream: Shining a Light in a Divided World through Six Principles of Martin Luther King Jr.

Share the Dream™ is a six-session video Bible study based on the life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. You will look at six biblical principles that shaped Dr. King’s life and motivated him to speak on behalf of African-Americans in the Civil Rights Movement: love, conscience, freedom, justice, perseverance, and hope.

The best way to Share the Dream is to follow in Dr. King’s footsteps and embrace his vision. You can help a new generation better understand, live, experience, and ultimately form a community around the unifying principles at the heart of the dream to which Dr. King dedicated his life.

God and Race Bible Study Guide plus Streaming Video: A Guide for Moving Beyond Black Fists and White Knuckles

God’s plan for the church is a body that represents “every nation, tribe, people and language” (Revelation 7:9). Sadly, this is not how the church looks today. Odds are that if you walk into a church, you will find a group of people who look like they belong to the same tribe and nation.

What’s more, believers often feel the words God and race don’t go together. We would rather talk about anything else other than race. But unless we start to have these open-handed conversations, we will never move beyond the “black fists” and “white knuckles” that leave so many of our churches divided today.

In this study, John Siebeling and Wayne Francis provide a non-threatening means for pastors, church leaders, and churchgoers to start to dialogue about this important issue. God and Race probes the meaning of racial reconciliation and reveals how the church can be a positive and effective leader to move us forward, beyond hate and injustice, to equality and love.

Ephesians: Life in God’s Diverse Family

How can we all get along in God’s diverse family? Join pastor Derwin Gray in this video Bible study on a journey through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians that will encourage you to live in the grace and mercy of God to show the world what life with God looks like.

Ephesus was comprised of people who came from different backgrounds—racially, economically, and politically. So it’s little wonder the believers in that city were finding it difficult to come together as one, put aside their differences, and get along in God’s new family. In other words, the church in Ephesus was having the same problems we face today.

I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith

In I Am Restored, Lecrae explains how his journey to restoration revealed:

  • The importance of not normalizing traumatic circumstances
  • The truth that God still loves us in spite of what we’ve done
  • How not to turn people wounds into God wounds
  • The suffering in suppression but freedom of confession
  • How to take care of the mind, body, and soul that God has given us

Life has a way of marring or damaging what you were created for. But God loves to restore. So make the decision to journey toward God and be what he has always intended you to be.
