William on American IslandMission
The mission of Race to Reconcile is to recognize the problem of systemic division in our culture whether political, social or racial and to demonstrate a healing option that is possible only through acts of forgiveness made possible by and through the Love of God being shed abroad in our hearts.

 

Vision Statement
Our vision is to create waves of compassion that are borne out of acts of forgiveness by and through faith in Christ.  A tangible vision that manifest itself in changed lives within communities throughout our nation. A wave of grace that replicates itself to more acts of forgiveness, love and kindness that are spontaneous and contagious. It embodies the spirit of the love of God that compels these love acts – through us – beyond our own reason or purpose.  

 

Why would I take such a venture on?  God spoke to my heart that’s why.

On route to visiting my dad, I had a vision from the Lord to create Race to Reconcile. I felt a strong burden to compel Americans to allow God’s love through each of us to bring healing to our nation. By acts of forgiveness demonstrated from one race to another, the current cultural division we see in our country can be rendered powerless. I’m committed to fostering reconciliation and encouraging the people I meet about the unconditional power of forgiveness regardless of the wrong.

From the political to the racial; division in our nation is at epidemic levels. My goal for Race to Reconcile is to help people rediscover the purpose in God’s plan and to realize love is better than hate and forgiveness really works. When people are deeply hurt, especially when the practice of slavery and social injustice has been entrenched in our culture for over 100 years, we tend to not only hurt back but also systemically foster patterns that not only deepen the divide but also cause more destruction upon victims of unforgiveness than the offenders themselves. However, choosing to love and forgive through a powerful and loving God, we can change our own future and experience the joys of life that God intended for us.
