Be the Bridge Racial Reconciliation Training Seminar, with Latasha Morrison Announced for Oct. 29-30!

Click here for details.

During September 2020, Bishop Mike Lowry and Dr. Clifton Howard hosted an online "Brown Bag Book Study" each Wednesday during the lunch hour (11:30 a.m - 12:30 p.m) on the book Be the Bridge by Latasha Morrison.

In John's Gospel, Jesus tell us, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32 CEB) The truths discussed in Latasha Morrison's book Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation are, at times, very painful. However, by facing these truths, we can become free. Ms. Morrison invites readers to use the biblical principles of lamentation, confession and forgiveness to overcome racial division and end systemic racism. Be the Bridge is a fantastic resource to help Christ followers reevaluate all that we think and believe about race and beome bridge builders committed to pursuing justice and promoting racial healing in light of the Gospel.
