The Local Church Ministries Team (LCM) of the Central Pacific Conference recently decided to start a “CPC Reads” initiative. Based on a conversation held in April 2015, the team chose the book, Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation by Jennifer Harvey. While the book’s primary audience is for White Christians, Christians of Color may be interested in the author’s argument of a reparations paradigm over a reconciliation paradigm. Rev. Jennifer Brownell and Rev. Hilary Martin Himan are organizing a conference-wide book club in 2016 with a variety of options for CPC churches.
