Ep. 3 Lyrical Lesson – How Can I Teach a White Child to Challenge Racism without Guilt or Shame?

When Pastor Jamey referenced the song I Need You to Survive as a source of inspiration and encouragement, I immediately thought of my childhood church. Our programs garnered media attention during Black History Month and MLK celebrations, and in several of those programs our youth group performed to the song. I remember passionately expressing the beautiful and powerful message of the song to every person sitting in the pews. It wasn’t uncommon to see individuals quietly weeping, whether they were a stranger passing through or a familiar face. The message of this song is timeless and reiterates Pastor Jamey’s call for love in action.
