Transformational Conversations About Race Week 1

During the month of February, Black History Month, we will be exploring together in worship God's heart for racial reconciliation and social justice.  Each sermon will find lessons and wisdom from the ancient contexts and message of scripture that opens up exhortation and encouragement for how we navigate our own current context of racial diversity, social tension, and the ongoing effort to live as a beloved community.  In this first week, the story of the Tower of Babel begins an encounter with the systems we erect to try to place ourselves in charge of society, their potential for oppression, and God's response. There are 6 videos all together that combine for the full sermon given by Pastor April Blaine and Karen Hewitt:
