Dear White Christians . . .livestream POSTPONED TO Wednesday, 11/11 at 11:45 am

 THIS EVENT WAS POSTPONED TO WEDNESDAY, 11/11/15 AT 11:45 am. (due to weather-related issues).

How do we begin to make sense of where we find ourselves racially in this nation today? How do we enable our institutions and congregations to respond with prophetic power, insight and action? How can a focus on “whiteness” in our communities committed to justice help us develop a deeper understanding of the roles and  relationships of white people to communities of color?

Ponder these questions and more with Dr. Jennifer Harvey…

Her teaching, writing and public speaking focus on the intersections of religion and ethics with race, gender, activism, politics, spirituality, and justice.

She is especially committed to working with faith communities as they seek to cultivate effective, prophetic ministry in this regard.
