The General Commission on Race and Religion of The United Methodist Church (GCORR) has created a series of Vital Conversations on Realities of Race and Racism. This Vital Conversations series features contemporary theologians, sociologists, laity, clergy, and other thought-leaders dealing with challenges of race, culture, and oppression in the Church and world today.

On November 20, we will continue these vital conversations with a video and discussion of “Church: Building the Beloved Community” with Rev. Dr. Miguel De la Torre, professor of Social Ethics and Latino/a Studies at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado. Discussion will be led by Dr. Adama Brown and Pastor Cathy Stone.

Please contact Pastor Cathy with any questions at cathy@fumcaustin.org.
