Presenter: Martha Kearse
Follow one pastor’s journey of coming to understand what the true issues are that keep white Christians from understanding, and offering justice to, black people. Learn how the theology of hospitality can help us to move forward in understanding where it is that we have broken faith with our black brothers and sisters, and where we can change our own behaviors and attitudes to make things better. Based on her book published by Smyth and Helwys (2019).
