Greg Boyd from Woodland Hills in the Twin Cities area addresses George Floyd’s death and talks about the issue of racism. This is actually a good talk about racism by Boyd and also a panel with blacks who share their thoughts on racism.
“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
Martin Luther King
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1-2 ESV
Greg Boyd is the senior pastor of Woodland Hill Church in he Twin Cities area. He was written about by the New York Times when he refused to give a platform to a conservative running for office in 2006. He lost 20% of his congregation which amounted to 1,000 out of 5,000 members. His book about how the United States is not a Christian nation has caused controversy with those who wage the culture wars. You can read that book in, “The Myth of a Christian Nation: How the Quest for Political Power Is Destroying the Church.”
After the death of George Floyd, Greg Boyd addressed the issue of racism from Woodland Hills. You can watch the sermon above and I hope you do. I listened to it while working on another post earlier. Boyd addressed the horror of Floyd’s death. He spoke about the history of racism in the United States and said that he was going to use his white privilege to talk about this issue from his podium. Greg even talked about his two black grandchildren and his fears for them growing up in the United States. Greg’s talk is followed by a panel with several blacks who share their thoughts about racism and the death of George Floyd.
