“How Then Shall We Live? American Society, Race, and the Church.”

TODAY, 10:45 am, Lower Auditorium, Room 12
Discussion Leaders: Brandon Spencer and Steve Ybarrola

The last few years have demostrated quite clearly that we do not live in a “post-racial” society. Seemingly every week there is another incident which reminds us that “race” is still very much with us. What is the cause of such racial tensions and how can we, as the church, be used by God as a means of understanding and reconcilation?
