Reconciling Love: Approaching Race as a Kingdom Person

Start Date: Feb 03, 2020

Race is arguably one of the hardest topics to discuss. As people of different backgrounds come together to talk the potential for hurt feelings, misunderstanding, and anger are so great that many of us avoid it altogether—but maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe there is a way to approach this topic with a heart for unity and a passion for peace. Here at Woodland, we believe you can be empowered to bring the peace of Christ to this his stakes topic. Join Osheta Moore, Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy, and Kevin Callaghan for a six week class on race and our Kingdom values such as identity in Christ, sacrificial love, humility, and hopefulness. This class is for anyone who has wanted to learn about race and racial reconciliation but has felt afraid or maybe even uninvited. This is a safe and loving space for you!

Monday nights, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Duration: 6 weeks
