Gracism
Gracism
The Art of Inclusion
''The parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.'' I CORINTHIANS 12:23.... When people deal with color, class or culture in a negative way, that's racism. But the answer is not to ignore differences as if they don't matter. Instead, we can focus on diversity in a positive way, as an opportunity to show God's favor to others. That's gracism. David Anderson, pastor of one of the most vibrant multicultural churches in America, responds to prejudice and injustice with the principle of gracism-radical inclusion for the marginalized and excluded. Building on the apostle Paul's exhortations in 1 Corinthians 12 to honor the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of color, class or culture. He offers seven sayings of the gracist with practical examples for building bridges and including others. A Christian alternative to secular models of affirmative action or colorblindness, gracism is an opportunity to extend God's grace to people of all backgrounds.
