Intercultural Conversation
March 5, 10 a.m. - Noon
Salado UMC - Youth Activities Center
650 Royal St, Salado, Texas
 
All of our hearts broke when Atatiana Jefferson, a young African American woman in Fort Worth was murdered by a local police officer.   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.  Our prayer is that through the exchange of dialogue, we might find mutual ways to understand each other and partner in ministry.
 
On March 5 from 10 a.m. - Noon, we will hold an intercultural dialogue with the pastors of the South District at Salado UMC in the Youth Activities Center, 650 Royal St., Salado, Texas. 
 
Please make plans to attend this very important event.
