JESUS CHRIST AND THE ‘DIVIDING WALL’: RACE AND GOD’S MISSION October 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2020, at 7:30 p.m

Mission matters. Race matters. Are you or your church looking for resources on how to have deep conversations on race? As our nation continues to grapple with the consequence of racial injustice, we as Christians need to have a truthful conversation with one another on how our understanding of race impact the way we engage in God’s mission. Join us for this virtual McClure Lectures and WMI Month of Mission Series, where we will gather online for four Wednesday evenings to explore issues of racial justice with world-class speakers. This will be an opportunity to connect and learn with people from all over the country. Churches will also be organizing watch parties to gather their members for guided discussion following plenary presentations.
