Creative God, Colorful Us

Today on Freedom Friday with Perry and Shawna, author Trillia Newbell joins the team to have a conversation about her amazing new children’s storybook:  Creative God, Colorful Us.  It tells the story of creation, of our being created in God’s image, of our fall into sin that has led to the hostility and hatred and racism that we know all too well.  But it also tells of our great Rescuer, the Lord Jesus, who died and rose to forgive us and change us into lovers who celebrate all the colors of the human race.  And it tells our kids where the story is headed:  New heavens and new earth where every tribe and tongue and color will live in unbridled joy!  Get his for your kids!   First Trillia shares her faith story—she thought Christianity was all about trying hard to get God’s smile.  Then she shares her passion to share God’s story with kids, to disciple kids in the way of Jesus.  Next, we talk about the root of racism, the sin in us.  Then we talk about helping kids find their identity in Jesus.  Next, we drill down into how Jesus saves us from the prejudice that lurks in our hearts.  *Then, Trillia shares the racism that she has experienced as an African American and how God has broken her heart for those who have hurt her.*  Next Trillia shares where the story is headed, new heavens and new earth where people from every color flourish together and forever.  Finally, Trillia shares some riveting insights about why so few African Americans go to the nations with the gospel.
