Breakout Session


Racial Reconciliation in Black and White   Understanding and overcoming barriers

No laws have been changed. Segregation no longer exists. Yet race relations in America seem to be deteriorating, not getting better. Significant disparities in the black communitiy still exist and leaders struggle to understand why.

Sheila will explain the origins of the disparities in the black community and why racial reconciliation can only be achieved in and through God’s word.

This breakout session will guide you in understanding:

  • The origins of the disparities in the black community
  • Why the way the world addresses the “problem” will never work
  • What God says about racial reconciliation
