"Race and Faith: Would Jesus Take a Knee?"

Since the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in the summer of 2014, the nation has been confronted with the consequences of unresolved racial divisions established at its founding. These divisions reached a dramatic crescendo in Charlottesville this summer where images of torch-bearing protestors re-created the worst of our dark history of race relations. Why are we still here over a century after the Civil War? How can people of faith tackle these long-seeded divisions and move to healing? Join us in Adult Ed as we strive to understand the divide and discuss the path forward.
