Racism and Christianity: Having the Hard Conversations

Join Kristin as she speaks with Dr. Antipas Harris and Dr. Paul Meier, of our own Meier Clinics Podcast, as they discuss racism. Both are men who follow God’s path, one black, one white. They both sit down and have the difficult conversation about racism, how Christianity is impacted by it, and racism in our general lives. Hear these two incredible men, different in many ways, have a tough conversation that actually feels refreshing.

Dr. Antipas L. Harris holds a dual appointment as president-dean of Jakes Divinity School (JDS) and associate pastor at The Potter’s House (TPH), both located in Dallas, Texas. A brilliant thinker and prolific writer, Harris is advancing the vision of Bishop and Chancellor T.D. Jakes, founder of the fully-accredited, online seminary. Responding to the growing need for cutting-edge ecclesial leadership that transcends denominational lines, Harris’ mandate is to prepare today’s leaders for tomorrow’s Church.

Dr. Paul Meier is an MD, Psychiatrist, and an Ordained Minister who is the founder of the Meier Clinics. He has authored or co-authored over 80 books, mostly Christian self-help books like Love is a Choice and Happiness is a Choice, and also a series of Bible Prophecy novels, including The Third Millennium. He is the host of our very own Meier Clinics Podcast, you can find more of his podcasts available there.

Racism, Christianity, and Mental Health with Dr. Antipas Harris

Join Kristin as she speaks with Dr. Antipas Harris about how a growing number of black youth is leaving the church due to the inherent racism within our modern-day Christian culture.  Hear as Antipas speaks about how we need to reevaluate how we think of Christianity.  As a Practical Theologian, his book, “Is Christianity the White Man’s Religion?” addresses how, while many may see one thing in church, the Bible is actually full of diversity.  Perhaps Christianity itself isn’t the problem, but rather our current vision of what Christianity is.

Dr. Antipas L. Harris holds a dual appointment as president-dean of Jakes Divinity School (JDS) and associate pastor at The Potter’s House (TPH), both located in Dallas, Texas. A brilliant thinker and prolific writer, Harris is advancing the vision of Bishop and Chancellor T.D. Jakes, founder of the fully-accredited, online seminary. Responding to the growing need for cutting-edge ecclesial leadership that transcends denominational lines, Harris’ mandate is to prepare today’s leaders for tomorrow’s Church.
Dr. Antipas writes for the general faith inquirer and does research to inform theological education with new insights to prepare ministers for leadership in a complex and often complicated world.
Boldly bearing witness to faith in the public square, Dr. Harris is, without question, a public theologian. His latest book, Is Christianity the White Man’s Religion? speaks to the personal relevance of Christianity and dares the Church to define – or re-define – itself as ordered by Scripture, not polity. Well regarded in the board room and the ‘hood, Dr. Antipas’ words often have a “Pied Piper” effect; audiences sense his authenticity and respond to his calls to action. With a unique blend of biblical wisdom and sagacious humor, Harris says what the Church needs to hear and writes what the world needs to know.

How You Can Keep Sane this Summer.

Resurging COVID cases. Heavy hearts weary from racism and unequal treatment due to skin color. Canceled vacations. Uncertainty

David Wood: Tough Conversations About Money and Race –TPS420

David Wood is a high-performance coach for executives, entrepreneurs, and teams and the author of “Get Paid For Who You Are.” He was nominated to the Transformational Leadership Council alongside such thought leaders as Don Miguel Ruiz, John Gray, and Marianne Williamson. David believes the tough conversations we avoid are our doorways to confidence, success, and even love – in both work and life. In this episode, we talk about having tough conversations about money and race.


David tells us how he decided to focus on tough conversations when he worked in corporate and eventually learned about things like emotional intelligence and other personal growth techniques.
When conversations are looming, we tend to avoid them.
With the CARE model David uses, the first step is to ask, “What is your hope for this conversation, what is your fear?”
I ask David what keeps people from talking about money. I use an example of when a husband racks of credit card charges but is afraid to tell his wife. He shows us how to use the CARE model in this case.
There is often a fear of loss.
We spend time talking about difficult conversations about race relations.
David shares his position as a privileged white male and what he has to do in order to have the race conversation.
It’s only in the past few weeks that David has been developing awareness about what goes on for blacks.
David is trying to understand his own whiteness, privilege, and unconscious bias.

118 – Brit Holmberg – Becoming An Anti-Racist Social Worker

If you’re not talking about power, then you’re really not doing racial equity work or inclusive work.” ~Brit Holmberg

Brit Holmberg, MSW, LCSW, is a staff therapist at The Wellness Center of Loyola University and a longtime friend. He’s also the co-creator, alongside his colleague Marion Malcome MSW, LCSW, of “Becoming An Anti-Racist Social Worker”. 

Use of that hyphenate is critical to this conversation. Not racist is easy but anti-racist? That’s where the real work sits and, spoiler alert: it never ends. As Brit explains, supporting the radical social changes Black people and people of color demand – and deserve – requires white allies to embark upon a life-long process of unlearning and decentering.

So what does a CIS HET white guy know about racism? Glad you asked. Brit is clear on this point: he’s not one of racism’s intended victims. Instead, his mission is to make inroads with people who, like him, have long been the beneficiaries of white supremacist culture. 

Does that make him a healer, wounded or otherwise? You’ll have to listen in to hear what Brit thinks about my favorite question. The process of becoming an anti-racist, though? That’s transformative healing for those on both sides of that equation.

Brit offers these excellent suggestions for your anti-racist syllabus:
