How will we work collectively to attain racial equality? An essential dialog with six managers The alternate
Three weeks after George Floyd's death, protests continue to be widespread in our nation. This is a time for pastors to listen and lead. We recently convened a conversation with six respected church leaders to help us understand these issues. The panel included: James Meeks, Senior Pastor, Salem Baptist Church, Chicago, IL; Brian Brodersen, Senior Pastor, Calvary Chapel, Santa Ana, CA; Johnson Bowie, pastor, Victory Church, Norcross, GA; Charlie Dates, pastor-in-chief of the Progressive Baptist Church, Chicago, IL; Laurel Bunker, Vice Vice President, Christian Education and Church Relations, Bethel University, St. Paul, MN; and John K. Jenkins Sr., senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Glenarden, Landover, MD.
Today we are broadcasting this conversation at 12pm CST on my Facebook page. I hope you will join me when Laurel Bunker comes to me as we discuss your questions. I encourage you to participate in the Facebook conversation and then discuss it with your employees. Below is a list of resources our panel members suggest for further reading.
