In the wake of recent racially-charged events, I’ve done a little thinking about racial issues in the Church. I’m not hugely experienced with these things, so I’m don’t think I’m qualified to say that much about race.

That said, I have spent some time researching the doctrines of the Church and the sacraments. And these are relevant to racial issues, because in Christ’s Church all peoples and races are formed into “one new man” (Eph. 2:15) and are bound together as one body by the one loaf (1 Cor. 10:16-18).

This is the subject of my very first podcast. My new podcast is called The Nicene Nerdcast, and episode one is about racism and Communion. Listen below and give me your thoughts.
