2019 Session Topics
Thursday Morning Session 1: Aren’t we over this yet?
What today’s racism looks like in culture and the church. “What’s the problem with races just keeping to themselves? My church isn’t racist, we even have a black person who attends… or used to attend.”
Thursday Afternoon Session 2: Why is the race issue such a big deal to God?
Theological Foundation-Theology of God’s renewal and Redemption of all things. “How is my idea of reconciliation different than God’s? In what ways am I blocking God’s desires to reconciliation? In what ways could I be allowing my church to block God’s desire to reconcile race?”
Thursday Evening Session 3: Ministry of Reconciliation/Community Engagement
“What does this look like? I’m pretty sure no other races even want to reconcile with me or my church!” “How do you reconcile?”
Friday Morning Session 4: What this church looks like!
Multicultural Church: ethnic and racial diversity. Is this even possible?
Friday Afternoon Session 5: Space and Love for the Refugee and Immigrant
The world is coming to us! Examples. Stories. Videos. Opportunities.
Friday Evening Session 6: Vision and Inspiration.
God has done this before, He is doing it now, He can do it through you, and He can do this in your church!
