Racism in the World Church

February 15-17, 2024

Time to Wake Up: Racism in the World Church. February 15-17, 2024, Waco Texas
I went to the first Racism in the White Church Conference at the beginning of my sabbatical three years ago. I heard fascinating people talk about racism and they really challenged things that I thought I knew; they challenged my heart. God used their words to humble me. Since then, I’ve continued to learn from people different from me, especially women and BIPOC. I read and listen to books and I go to hear them speak. My heart and eyes continue to be opened to what God wants to show me and I am changed.

The Truth that Will Liberate Us All

“The thing about truth is it takes us where it takes us.”
Ralph Douglas West

“One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of the status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.”
Martin Luther King, Jr., Where Do We Go From Here?
