VITAL CONVERSATIONS

Exploring Racism

Presented by

 Bridging the Divide, a Joint Ministry of Faith, Israel, and Epworth United Methodist Churches

If you have read this far, we are glad that you have an interest in becoming a participant in or are simply curious about Vital Conversations. It is our belief that these discussions, addressing specific facets of racism, will benefit each of us as well as our churches by opening us to the fresh air and nurturing waters of our sometimes misunderstood truths.

Vital Conversations is a series of eight discussions about race and ethnicity. Most importantly, these discussions are about you and your fellow Christians. They are frank and challenging and are designed to elicit and, by this, to examine our own views of racism and the factors that have contributed to it.

The first session will consist of an introduction to the material, and each of the remaining sessions will open with a short video followed by discussion in small groups with a final wrap-up of the entire group.

These conversations also challenge the church’s role in avoiding the topic of racism by ignoring the subject or by allowing the continued expression of racism within the denomination.

Vital Conversations elicits ways in which each of us, as well as our churches, can identify and act on a new understanding of and a Christ-led plan to confront and defeat racism.
