Black Lives Matter: a series of conversations within the Church

Published: September 29, 2020

These three podcasts were created to explore the issues of race, ethnicity and diversity within our Church with the backdrop of all that has been happening in our world, including the murder of George Floyd and our failures as a Church regarding racial justice.

In the first podcast recorded in the days following the murder of George Floyd, Bishop Rachel explored these topics with four black Christians and then followed that conversation up a few weeks later with all white people. In the third podcast, produced more recently, she brought those involved together to reflect on what each other said and to discuss what’s currently going on in the world today.
