Dianne Glave: Ministry & Church

screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-1-42-44-pm-1

Many thought that when Barack Obama was elected president, we were in a bright, shiny, and new post-racial period. Some thought racism had been dismantled, and there was no need to even talk about racism.

The year is 2017 and racism is more virulent than ever. In reality, the strides made during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s have been reversed with an escalation of hate crimes against people of color.

As a way of contributing to the hard conversations about dismantling racism with escalating rhetoric and violence, I authored United Methodist Church’s General Commission on Religion and Race’s Vital Conversations on Race, Culture, and Justice, Series 1. Much work needs to be done to create communities and conversations where God’s vision of justice and equality prevails. Organize a small group at your church or in your organization around this study that includes videos, questions, and prayer.

Hard copies are available for order here.
