Significant and meaningful conversations are happening in our global society every day. Yet, in the midst of this, God calls us as Christians to humility and faithful practice in the face of today’s most daunting issues. So over the next year, we’re inviting you to explore the nuances of peacemaking, refugee crisis, local justice, poverty, racial reconciliation, care for the vulnerable, and more with a posture of curiosity. Through a series of Learning Labs, or thoughtful sessions on the topics of our day, we’ll engage divisive issues from the standpoint of humility—in an attempt to learn from one another and grow towards unity over discord.
Racial tensions are, in many ways, as high as we have seen in decades. The conversation cannot be ignored and in fact, the Church is uniquely equipped to play a key role in our cultural dialogue [and transformation] around race and justice. Join us on Thursday, March 8, as we humbly learn about race in America, as well as the church’s past role and current calling. Together, we will discuss and dream about what it means for us to live out the way of Jesus and make measurable change in our world despite the divisions and tensions we see around us every day. No matter your experience, knowledge, or past participation in conversations of race—please join us—all are welcome.
