  • When people deal with colour, class or culture in a negative way, thats racism. But the answer is not to ignore differences as if they dont matter. Instead, we can focus on diversity in a positive way. Thats gracism. Pastor David Anderson responds to prejudice and injustice with the principle of gracism: radical inclusion for the marginalized and excluded. Building on the apostle Pauls exhortations in 1 Corinthians 12 to honour the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of colour, 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 colourblindness, gracism is an opportunity to extend Gods grace to people of all backgrounds.
