Michael Andretti’s racetracks quote

“Running on different types of racetracks is challenging.” -Michael Andretti
America’s race track has taken us in circles for centuries.

To get beyond the race tracks: In the midst of divisiveness, search for the image of God in the people who disagree with you. There’s something likeable in every person. Why not try to find it? Inside every person there are amazing insights, experiences, and strengths, if we will only take the time to look.

When Christians worship in ethnically and racially diverse groups, they show the world what Heaven looks like.

Sometimes we have to take a searching look at the past to free up the future. 
Perhaps it is time to talk about race openly, honestly, and compassionately. For example: American slavery is often considered to be an anomaly instead of a 246 year atrocity. For practical ways to get off the race track, go to this link.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
