Social action is not an optional aspect of Christian life; it’s an essential component of love for our neighbors. Dr. Ron C. Potter offers his analysis on how Jesus presented this social aspect of his mission. A holistic vision of the Gospel brings together the life of the mind, spiritual formation, and social action.
Dr. Potter is a scholar of African American Christianity in the U.S., having served at the Center for Urban Theological Studies in Philadelphia and Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, Pennsylvania. He also happens to be son-in-law to Christian community development pioneers John and Vera Mae Perkins.
Dr. Potter is joined by Bishop Henry Joseph, pastor of Zion Church in Ridgeland, MS, to discuss a theological framework for racism—and how to repent from it.
