Recommended Reading: Matt Lacey on Implicit Racial Bias and Mission

Rev. Matt Lacey, the Executive Director of United Methodist Volunteers in Mission, Southeastern Jurisdiction (UMVIM, SEJ), wrote this recent reflection about having his implicit racial biases about who serves in mission and who is in need revealed to him. Rev. Lacey connects this insight to the sorts of attitudes that the (predominantly white American) church tends to bring to its mission work. Rev. Lacey is to be commended for his honesty in exploring and sharing his implicit biases for the sake of helping us all to uncover and begin to move past ours.
