The Church's Role in the Work of Anti-Racism and Policing - An Odyssey Impact Young Adult Initiative Live Town Hall Event
Join the Odyssey Impact Young Adult Initiative for a candid discussion about how the Christian Church of 2020 can show up to help lead the work of anti-racism in society and equitable policing in Black and Brown communities.
Topics of discussion will include but are not limited to: Policy and Advocacy, Theological Foundations of the Church, Dismantling Systems and “Jesus and the Disinherited” …..” In this classic theological treatise [By Howard Thurman], the acclaimed theologian and religious leader Howard Thurman (1900-1981) demonstrates how the gospel may be read as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. Jesus is a partner in the pain of the oppressed and the example of His life offers a solution to ending the descent into moral nihilism. Hatred does not empower--it decays. Only through self-love and love of one another can God's justice prevail.” We hope you will be able to join us for this important discussion.
