Minnesota Council of Churches launches 'historic' reparations initiative
With 25 denominations representing some one million adherents, the Minnesota Council of Churches has embarked on a 10-year plan to tell the truth and educate about racism in Minnesota and offer reparations to black and indigenous communities harmed by it.

According to Jim Winkler, president of the National Council of Churches, he has never seen an anti-racism plan like the one laid out by the MCC.

“There’s a lot of anti-racism work going on,” Winkler told the Star Tribune. “But I haven’t seen a plan as systematically laid out as the Minnesota council has done.” ...

As one might figure from the SA article, many Blacks have different opinions on this topic from some Whites.

Instead of saying, 'I voted for Barack,' it'll be, 'I voted for Biden and against Trump,' as the new measuring stick for saying that one is not racist,...Going back to normal for Black people looks a lot different than it might look like for other folks in the sense that they're not reminded daily through the president's tweets or comments of America's very close connections to racism and white supremacy.

"'Normal' is a wealth and wage gap, health disparities, extrajudicial killings by police officers. That is the baseline of 'normal' for Black people in America---Erika Wilson, an associate professor of law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

excerpt from, "Even with Biden's win, many organizers are continuing the fight for equality"

Lincoln police have had fairly good relationship with a Black community, if memory serves, Omaha has had some problems?

If this 'counsel of churches' were actually legit, they wouldn't waste time promoting the satanic lie of 'racism' and how to fix it. God's true church knows Eve is the mother of ALL the living - Genesis 3:20, no mention of skin color variations. That there is only one race, the human race. That skin pigmentation does not necessitate 'another race'. Christ saves sinners, no mention of 'races' is found in Scripture. People come from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds, but all come from Eve, and all are fallen on Adam.
The true church isn't called to 'fix' racism, abortion, sexual immorality, or worldly problems that stem from its own fallen state. The true Israel of God are called to proclaim Christ and His finished work. We preach Christ crucified, Paul said. Why is Christ crucified essential? Because His obedience unto death is the righteousness of God, His work is the propitiation for sin, Christ alone and not what you do. His robe of righteousness imputed is the only thing God accepts.theres no Roman road to follow, no method to perform in order to help God save you.

As Mike pointed out, Jim Lincoln is just like his father, who was a liar from the start. Jim pushes the satanic lie of racism. Thing is, those who are deluded never see that.....

Samuel Bess and Gang Zhou, had what I think some of the best comments to the article on the article page. Just how are you going to straighten out the sins of the fathers? Of course some whiners say to pray for this and that, which absolves them of any action. it is good that a lot of people are thinking about this problem in Minnesota anyway.
Lily white churches as well as complete black ones have a certain blindness to racism. They often forget,
Galatians 3:26-28
26. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
27. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. --

But Jim, It’s obvious you don’t believe those verses. Evidence? You continually define things by color. As in “lily white churches” and “complete black ones.” It seems to fly over your head that when you do this, when you see the church’s role as needing color adjustment in order to prove its righteousness in Christ, that you are blind to your very own personal racism.

... the Rev Stacey Smith.... told the Tribune....’I feel....’.

Feel away, Reverend Stacey. And be sure your outfit is the one pays the so called reparations.

Yes indeed!

[The Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) is a state-level, judicatory-based council of Christian denominations with a mission to manifest the unity of the church in order to build the common good in the world. MCC pursues this mission by creating ecumenical and interfaith programmatic partnerships that work toward a vision of racial and social justice lived out in diverse communities throughout Minnesota. Therefore, MCC believes in and is committed to the core values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.]

There will be no gospel within MCC.
