Soteria Training: Confronting Racism in the Church with Drew Hart
In his provocative book "Trouble I've Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism," theologian and blogger Drew G. I. Hart places police brutality, mass incarceration, anti black stereotypes, poverty, and everyday acts of racism within the larger framework of white supremacy. On July 22nd, Drew will be at the Festival Center to guide attendees through the often difficult conversation of confronting racism within our own churches. Always leading toward Jesus, Hart will offered concrete practices for churches that seek solidarity with the oppressed and are committed to racial justice.
This will be a phenomenal event with practical advice for small group leaders who are hoping to facilitate conversation, clergy who are continuing this conversation within their congregations, and any community member who wants to know more about how they might be an active participant in confronting racism head on within their worshipping or living communities.
*Light refreshments will be served at this event, doors open at 12:30 pm.*
