All of our hearts broke when Atatiana Jefferson, a young African American woman in Fort Worth was killed in a shooting. At that time, Bishop Lowry brought together African American pastors for a dialogue. As a conference, we are taking the next step needed to raise awareness with all clergy and congregations.
This Spring, our district will be hosting an event for pastors to come together in dialogue regarding intercultural relations, the discrimination that exist in the justice system, and the effects of disproportional poverty on communities of color. My prayer is that through the exchange of dialogue, we might find mutual ways to understand each other and partner in ministry.
Join Guest Speaker Jerry Roberson on March 17th, from 10:00-12:00, for intercultural dialogue with the pastors of the West District at FUMC Eastland, 215 S. Mulberry St., Eastland, TX 76448.
Please make plans to attend this very important event. This is a MANDATORY event for pastors in the West District.
