March 10, 2011, I set out on this journey toward race-lessness and as the hymn writer says, “I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now.” The blog was first named The Daily Race. Working with each post to create sacred space for a life without race, I relied heavily on my conviction that there was life a part from and after race. I also believed strongly that the answer to the post- racial life had already been given in Scriptures and that it affirmed our God and our image as pre- racial and supra- racial.
Today, I stand courageously and proclaim the race-less gospel of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for each word, each step that has brought me here and now. I am walking in the light and freedom of Jesus Christ, thankful for the discomfort that race caused me so long ago as it lead me to this place of purpose and meaning.
Since 2011, I have shared more than 550 posts concerning race and the Christian faith. I didn’t start with an end in mind; so three years later, I am not sure what will constitute the end of my writing. But, I want to keep walking away from race and its progeny. I desire to put as much distance between me and the history of race as is possible. I want to see my authentic self: race-less and Christ- filled. What a gift that would be. Happy Anniversary to me!

Happy Anniversary, Starlette! Along with the above posts ( and my shared wishes for books AND PERSONAL VIDEO POSTS), I always sit back and think about the character and courage it takes to be race-less or any other kind of Christian revolutionary. Martin Luther and Martin Luther King applaud you.
Wow (big grin). Thank you so much, Tobias. I am overwhelmed by your words. I will take your shared wishes and make them my goals. Again, many, many thanks brother.
Your Blogs have been outstanding. I’m just waiting on the Book. Not so sure I like the new title over the old one, but I am adjusting. Wishing you life’s very best and the absolute pure blessings of our Christ on your life, your family and your ministry.
Thank you so much, Dr. Wood. Book, huh? Give me a couple of years. I have a lot more reading and writing to do in the meantime. And thanks for adjusting, it’s an adjustment for me too as with anything new. But, I am encouraged by it and have a renewed energy to write because of it. Again, thank you so much for your support and friendship.
Happy Anniversary! Have been following you for a year or more now. Thank you for the work you are doing!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for your support! To God be the glory for the work that He is doing is us.
Happy Anniversary 🙂
I love the approach you’ve taken to sharing the gospel of Christ! I pray that God continues to guide and protect you and your family as you surrender to His will and answer the call upon your life. God bless you.
Thank you for your prayers and your gratitude. The former is so much more important and are always needed. I sincerely appreciate it and welcome your prayers always.
