RACE & RECONCILIATION RESOURCES

Tahoe Forest Church renounces any form of racial and ethnic indifference, exclusion, subjugation, or oppression as a grave sin against God and our fellow human beings. We lament the legacy of every form of racism throughout the world, and we seek to confront that legacy through repentance, reconciliation, and biblical justice. We seek to repent of every behavior in which we have been overtly or covertly complicit with the sin of racism, both past and present; and in confession and lament we seek forgiveness and reconciliation.

Please use these resources below to learn more about racial reconciliation and healing. This is by no means a full list and is only a start, but our hope is that these resources will help us begin to learn, listen, heal and come humbly before the Lord in prayer, lament and reconciliation. If you have other racial reconciliation resources, please feel free to share them with us.
