We invite you to join us for a weekend conference of listening to voices of Christians of color who are on the front lines of combating racial injustice. We’ve asked our exceptional conference speakers to speak to those of us in predominantly white churches with loving candor and honesty about the church’s complicity in racial injustice. We hope they will help us move from that complicity to overcome racial injustice in our own hearts and minds, so we may be able to commit, with energy and compassion, to the collective work of change in the church and in our communities. Our desire for this conference is that it will be a time of honest discovery, deepened understanding, calls to action, and hope.
WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY
Also, please join us on Sunday at 10 am for a worship service.
All conference attendees are invited to join the congregations of Sojourner Truth Presbyterian Church of Richmond, CA and First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley at a special World Communion Sunday Worship Service. Rev. Kamal Hassan, Pastor at Sojourner Truth Presbyterian, will be preaching.
This conference is hosted by First Pres and co-sponsored by New College Berkeley.
