Leading Through Uncharted Territories - Dr. Mark DeYmaz - Race, Racism in America and the Church: The United Methodist Church's Clarion Call to Action Pt. 3 Metro District Sights & Sounds

    • Religion & Spirituality

In light of the murder of George Floyd - Minneapolis, Ahmaud Arbery - South Georgia, Breonna Taylor- Kentucky, the Mother Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church massacre - Charleston SC.  The protest, the riots and the list goes on and on. As difficult as it has become, as Christians we must speak truth about race, racism in America, and how the Church can no longer be silent, sit on the sidelines, believe that there is not  a problem, that it is not my problem, I didn’t cause this problem etc… As people of God, each of us has a mandate on our lives by God. Matthew 25:31-46 reminds us all, "The son of man will judge the nations. Each person individually, and collectively will have to answer to our response to the clarion call. There is much Kingdom work to be done. Who's in? Contact Dr Stephanie Moore Hand, shand@wnccumc.org
