In an article written for Faith + Lead, RootedGood Co-Founder, Mark Elsdon, writes on how many Christian churches in the United States have large amounts of "hidden" wealth in invested assets and property and reminds readers of a hard truth: this enormous wealth was made possible by two key stolen inputs: land and people. Land that was stolen from indigenous people and people were stolen from their land. Mark Elsdon offers readers two suggestions on how Churches can help repair injustices of the past by thinking about and supporting reparations in their contexts.
