What does racial reconciliation look like after Charlottesville?

I chair the North Georgia Conference Commission on Religion and Race. Our commission is made of people from across the conference who are Korean, Indian, Black, Latino, Jamaican, Vietnamese, White, local pastor, lay, deacon, elder, provisional clergy, female, and male. Together, we have worked to create a process for racial reconciliation based largely on the work of Allan Aubrey Boesak and Curtiss Paul Deyoung in Radical Reconciliation: Beyond Political Pietism and Christian Quietism.

The recent display of racism in Charlottesville makes this discussion one that is timely. Every clergy leader has a responsibility to preach and teach about justice and to lead their congregation and community through racial reconciliation. 

Our work has caused us to begin this process in North Georgia. My workshop will be one that challenges attendees to stand firmly against injustice and oppression. I look forward to sharing our experience, our progress, our continued challenges, and also learning from each of you.
