What the White Church Must Do?*

What the White Church Must Do?*

On Sun., Jan. 14, Stirring the Waters, St. Columba's racial justice ministry, will kick off a four-part Sunday Forum series entitled, "What the White Church Must Do?*" With racial injustice alive and well, a truly Christian response is demanded of all of us. Join us as we wrestle with this question each week with the help of guest speakers. Come, learn and help develop strategies to advance St Columba’s important work in racial injustice.

*Note: Our use of this title pays homage to a sermon given by Pastor Delman Coates of Mt. Ennon Baptist Church entitled "What the White Church Must Do," a panel discussion of the same title with Pastor Coates at the Washington National Cathedral and to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail."
