Understanding the Story of Another

I’ve never experienced racism. I am white.

My wife is Hispanic and I’ve seen members of her family treated differently because of the color of their skin.

Some of my best friends in high school and college were black. I’ve seen some of the people I love the most be treated differently because of the color of their skin.

Every human life is to be valued. The problem is without understanding the story of another, it makes it easy to devalue them.

I’ve admired and looked up to Bill Hybels, the pastor of Willow Creek Church in Chicago for over 20 years. I’ve never admired him more than the moment I saw this video.
