On September 24 night Rehobeth hosted the first of several Courageous Christian Conversations on RACE. Fourteen local United Methodist Churches participated in this ground-breaking conversation. We asked brothers and sisters in Christ to speak honestly and lovingly about the divisive issues of race. We heard each other’s stories; we had open discussions about race in a racially mixed audience. Our mission was to engage in meaningful conversation, figuring “If the church cannot talk honestly and openly about race . . . then who can?”
We just scratched the surface; there is much more to come in this conversation; specifically on Tuesday, November 19, at 6:30, again at Rehobeth UMC. All are welcome to come and engage.
Participating United Methodist congregations:
Burnett’s Chapel, Celia Phelps, Groometown, Hinshaw, Holmes Grove, Moriah, Mount Tabor, New Goshen, Rehobeth, St. Andrews, St. John’s, Triad Native American, Union Memorial, & Vickery
