Provoking Racial Justice within Mainline Congregations

Fri 11 AM | Landing

The Reverend Milly Morrow and the Reverend Tami Forte Logan

Racial injustice in our society mandates a strategic response from clergy and faith leaders to provoke racial justice both within our own faith institutions and our respective communities. Come and engage with Rev. Tami Forte Logan, Missioner for Faith 4 Justice Asheville and Rev. Milly Morrow, Associate Dean at the Episcopal Cathedral All Souls, of Western North Carolina to explore how “provoking justice for black and brown bodied people” inside mainline congregations is a work of the Spirit and of the flesh. Experience the ways your compassion, fervent prayer and deep discernment can be transformed into collective strategy and mobilized networks while meeting your congregants where they are and walking alongside them as you both experience personal and communal transformation.
