Race and Religion

Pastor/author/activist Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove joins us at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 23, in Jubilee Hall to lead a dialogue on “The Uneasy Legacy Of Race And Religion In Our New South City.” He is the author of “Reconstructing The Gospel” available in the Goodness Gracious! gift shop in the Parish Life lobby. RSVP to attend. The conversation will be facilitated by Greg and Helms Jarrell of Charlotte’s QC Family Tree. Greg is the author of the forthcoming book, “A Riff of Love: Notes on Community and Belonging,” also available in Goodness Gracious! and elsewhere. For child care October 23, email lrsmit@mpumc.org.

Jonathan, who lives in Durham, talks about the coming conversation: “Since this book came out in the Spring, I’ve been facilitating conversations around the country about how America’s history of white supremacy has compromised Christianity, and how, at the same time, the faith of Jesus has always challenged racial injustice. I’m looking forward to this conversation because I’ve seen how it can bring healing and a fresh vitality to the gospel message, especially for people who are ready to face the truth about our present moral crisis in America.
