On Understanding Race & Privilege

Fort Wayne United has been holding forums on race regularly on Facebook Live.  John Suciu participated in a Zoom call LIVE on Facebook with other pastors and Christian leaders in our city as part of the Mosaic Unity: More than Allies series from Fort Wayne United and Youth for Christ City Life. 

The first video is a clip of John relating how he came to first understand the idea of privilege. The second video is the hour and a half long forum in its entirety. 

Forum participants include: John Suciu, pastor at Headwaters Church; Chris Todia, CEO of Youth for Christ for Northern Indiana; Kevin Rivers, lead pastor at Blackhawk Ministries; Nygel Simms, Regional Director – Urban Ministries for Youth for Christ; Iric Headley, director Fort Wayne United; Chris Freeman, pastor City Life Church; and Ryan Cochran, pastor at Broadway Christian Church.

 

 

Loving Your Brother or Sister in Christ Through Different Opinions on Public Health

WRITTEN BY Luke Suciu

 

How do you love your brother or sister in Christ through difference of opinion on public health? There are a few opinions on Covid-19; have you noticed? All of those opinions have been put on steroids by the fact that a vast majority of our communication is now happening online and everyone speaks like they have the authority of a prophet as soon as they get behind a keyboard.
