Toilet Paper Shortages

Toilet paper shortages. In our series addressing the importance of talking to our children about godly interactions across racial and multi-cultural lines all I can think about are toilet paper shortages.

Discipleship in Color: Why it’s Important to Talk About Diversity, Racism and Privilege with our Kids

“Baby, do you know why your skin is brown?” I asked my then four-year-old son. When he answered, “No,” I launched into a brief explanation of how God created us with something called melanin in our skin that gives our skin its color, and how it also can help protect us from getting hurt from the sun.
