Ep. 71 - Handing Children A Legacy of Justice and Righteousness with Dorena Williamson


We are building generations to unify God’s diverse kingdom.

Today Terry and I had the absolute honor of sitting down with author & longtime bridge-builder, Dorena Williamson. Dorena and her husband have spent the last 25 years building God’s Kingdom at their multicultural church in Nashville, Strong Tower Bible Church.

Dorena sits down with us today to talk about how we can unify God’s diverse kingdom and heal generations of racism. 

It all starts in our homes.

There is so much power in learning our history, owning it, and sharing it with our children. 

We know these conversations can be uncomfortable, but we want to encourage parents to own that responsibility and not shy away from the difficult conversations because in culture today more than ever we need to be engaging in this with our kids. 

Dorena has been building bridges in God’s Kingdom for over 20 years and has even written a series of children’s books on the topic. 

Today, she beautifully walks us through how to help parents expect and cultivate these conversations – the uncomfortable ones –  and teaches us the importance of unpacking these stories and using them as fuel for productive conversations that will lead to generational change. 

Families, we are all part of One Body with Christ as the perfect head.

Together we can and WILL heal generations of racism and hand our children a legacy of justice and righteousness.
