How do God’s people “bind up the brokenhearted” in Jesus’ name in a society as torn apart by violence, oppression, and strife as ours is currently? While taking steps forward in hopes that the major brunt of the COVID-19 crisis might be past, the death of George Floyd has sparked a wave of public conflict over racism at levels beyond all recent memory. We are in the middle of another crisis — an older, deeper, and wider one — marked by racial inequities, racial oppression, and racial violence. How should the church of Jesus Christ, in particular the PCA, respond at this moment in the American narrative?
Mission to North America is hosting weekly panel discussions with PCA leaders to address Racial Brokenness in America and Our Gospel Response. We encourage you to tune in to these important conversations.
The next discussion will be broadcast on Facebook Live Thursday, June 25th. Watch here.
Join us in hearing highlights of the REPORT OF THE AD INTERIM COMMITTEE ON RACIAL AND ETHNIC RECONCILIATION TO THE FORTY-SIXTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN AMERICA. This 2017 denominational document will be the guiding platform for the last webinar in this series. Our hope is that this webinar will give you a chance to engage the committee to learn how to shape your churches and ministries for Gospel-centered change regarding racism and ungodliness.
TE Howard Brown will moderate.
