EU Windows on the World 2018-10-26 - Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis

While the United States of America grows increasingly diverse, there is a seeming resurgence of emboldened white nationalism and re-assertion of white supremacy that threatens the Peace of the City and contradicts the character of God's will on earth as it is in heaven. The Church must bear witness to and embody the Good News - for all of God's children - in this socio-cultural context. But how do churches build immunity from racial and ethnic tensions that threaten to divide rather than unite congregations? Jacqui Lewis will share practical strategies for developing multiracial, multicultural communities of faith, based on her research, experience and leadership with The Middle Project and as Senior Pastor at Middle Collegiate Church, a vibrant, multiracial, welcoming, and inclusive congregation in New York City.<br>
