Critical Race

August 03, 2021
By Dr. Terry Flowers

 As we move deeper into toying with our galaxy with space travel, it is vitally important that we address our ability to harmoniously live and drive as humans here on earth. As the divide of our country moves progressively from having racial gaps to becoming a canyon of separation, it is more important than ever to remind our children of the critical race! Humanity. The human race as ordained and arranged by God is the ultimate curriculum and course of study we must all strive to excel in.
For a quarter of a century, St Philip’s has hosted the Destiny luncheon. Our students, families and the North Texas community are invited to participate in this event which celebrates the oneness of humankind. This concept is curriculum content worthy of universal school pedagogy and instructional priority. Our nation’s greatest platform to teach our children about the most critical race crumbled when God was uninvited from American schools.

Those of us who know 1 John 4: 8 is true have an obligation. God is love. This scripture is the path to celebrating the oneness of humankind, which can uplift and sustain humanity. Those who believe must remain hostages of hope in our works to prevent our children and the world from becoming hostages of hate. On a daily occurrence, we are witnessing the efforts of hatred to divide, destroy, and bring to death the spirit of creativity and hope. We are first observers of hate as a national threat.

As 2022 approaches and 246 years of existence of America arrives, let us make no mistake. The grounds of fertile hatred continue seeking to maximize growth with an appetite yearning to ignite humanity's end.
God’s design and desire for his creation to rally around love for all people is our true critical race obligation. Those who are believers have a calling to not allow an unreleased attack on the savior’s high regard for humanity. HIS light shines in the darkness and it will not be overtaken. HIS light must shine through us. It must illuminate our community, households, and the schools our children attend. The value of life and all humanity is a critical race we must focus on. We must not turn a blind eye to systematic denials of rights and privileges which can overtime prove fatal for all humanity. We must help our children identify that hatred based on differences is a symptom of internal and emotional insecurity.

Let us acknowledge that hatred desires to become its own superpower at the expense of humanity. School curriculums which attempt to elude the reality of God‘s love through the camouflage of programs targeting them using character traits and mindfulness fall short of what is critical to the human race. Without love, there will always be an energy to render parts of humanity into a classification of being subhuman. Remember the definition of love is found in 1 John 4: 8. Let us celebrate and support the oneness of humankind through our love as all being human beings as our world marches closer to the possibility of encounters with other galactic beings.
