ABOUT THE WEBINAR
You asked for it, and here it is! Thanks to an overwhelming response from our previous webinar, "Race and the Gospel," we have decided to host a Part Two! Dr. Walter Strickland will once again share his insight and experience, and will dive a little deeper into some of the questions you asked in the last webinar.
How can (and should) we as the Christian Church begin to address the racial divides we're seeing in our country's politics, within our communities, and even within our own churches? How can we facilitate meaningful and healthy conversations and positive steps forward? Where do we go from here?
Join us for "Race and The Gospel: Part Two!" (part of the JfL "Connections" Leadership Development Webinar Series) on Thursday, December 13th from 12-1PM (ET) as our guest facilitator, Dr. Walter Strickland, explores these questions and offers his personal and professional insight.
Through this webinar, participants will gain…
- a Biblical foundation for understanding race
- proper motivation for working toward reconciliation
- practical applications for living in community considering these realities
By registering for this webinar, you will receive:
- the full slide presentation and webinar recording
