The Color of Compromise: An Ongoing Conversation

Summer Acts of Service Reflections:

10 weekly online sessions (Wednesdays June 17-August 19 from 7:00-8:30pm) featuring large group presentation and small group conversation focused on the history and legacy of racial injustice in our nation and the church. Through listening, learning, and sharing in conversation, we will reflect on both the painful reality of racism and meaningful steps toward greater levels of justice and reconciliation.

Pastor Jim Melson leads this weekly series based on the book The Color of Compromise by Jamar Tisby who is an African American speaker, theologian, writer and president of The Witness: A Black Christian Collective. The book is a challenging and insightful resource to help all of us learn and grow in the call of Jesus to racial justice and reconciliation.

Each week will be recorded and made available at any time, so if you can’t be present some of the weeks you can still read the book and hear the teaching.
