RACISM AND CHRISTIANITY: What Would Jesus Say?

About this Event

What do the Abrahamic faiths say about racism? Might their teachings offer solutions to counteract or even prevent racism? Have aspects of these faiths inadvertently contributed to racism in our nation and around the world?

We will explore these and other important, challenging questions in the second of our three online gatherings, this one focusing on Christianity. Rev. Vernelle Nelson, Ordained Unity Minister, Unity Golden Life Ministries, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will open this session with remarks, and then we will break out into small “roundtable” groups. In this safe, facilitated space we will share our experiences, observations and concerns about the role of religion – Christianity, in particular – in the current racial climate.

This gathering is free with registration. You are welcome to sign up for one, two, or all three sessions:
