In seeking racial reconciliation, we begin to understand each other through dialogue and relationships.
A mosaic is an image made from the assemblage of small–often broken–pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. Their different colors work together to form a new, beautiful picture. A mosaic happens in community when we experience reconciliation with God and with others who are different from us. Together we form a beautiful, multicolored image.
Willow Creek is a place where people of all racial, ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds are embraced, find a place of belonging, and can unleash their unique contributions toward bringing the hope of Christ to our church, community, and world.
In seeking racial reconciliation, we begin to understand each other through real conversations and authentic relationships. We recognize the devastating consequences of structural inequality in our society, and can become advocates for justice.Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
-- 2 Cor. 5:17 NIV
