We are living in a time where the conversation about racial equality is essential. Businesses and institutions around the globe are doing their part to speak out against racism, but the Church has responded with silence. Our guest says enough is enough and is challenging the Body of Christ to speak out against racism and wake up to the racial issues plaguing our nation and our churches. Join us to discover why a muted voice is no voice at all.
When was the last time you had an honest, heartfelt, yet kind and productive conversation with someone about depression, mental illness, substance abuse, pornography, premarital sex, racism, divorce, abortion, LGBT issues, or politics? Our tendency is either to avoid talking about such volatile topics at all--even with other Christians--or to go on the attack, causing rifts that do nothing to encourage further discussion or growth. If you're tired of avoiding tough conversations, if you want to be a light in a dark world but you're not sure how, then join us to learn how to have those challenging conversations.
