Social Justice Discussion - Led by Rev. Will Montgomery and Rev. Marti Ringenbach
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room… race relations. As much as we might not want to admit to ourselves, we struggle with understanding the challenges faced by men and women of color in our society. We want to understand, we want to know what to say to our friends and neighbors without causing hurt or insult, we want things to be different. Educating ourselves is the first step. Watch a movie or documentary or read a suggested book and join the discussion.
