Race and Healing

Race & Healing Potluck Dinner and Discussion

Bring a dish for potluck sharing Sunday, February 23, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Lanier House. We will gather for dinner and a facilitated discussion of two engaging articles that further our conversations about race and healing. Both articles feature how members of two churches (one in Baltimore, the other in Newnan, Georgia) have confronted and responded in real time to edgy issues about the legacy of slavery when clergy and parishioners were suddenly confronted with startling discoveries.

Hughes PhD, scholar-in-residence in the College of Bible and Ministry at Lipscomb University. Dr. Hughes will be joined by the Rev. Dr. Thee Smith.
