2/9: Racial Reconciliation and the Church @SPU

Seattle Presbytery


Racial Reconciliation and the Church: Crossing the Credibility Divide


With Brenda Salter McNeil, Associate Professor and Director of Reconciliation Studies at Seattle Pacific University

Saturday, February 9, 2013

Time: 9 a.m.—4 p.m.
Place: Upper Gwinn (SPU campus)
Cost: $25 by January 25, $40 thereafter (includes lunch)

What would Jesus do in a world being torn apart by racial and ethnic division and strife? In John 4 we have an answer: He crossed religious, social, political, and cultural barriers to interact with a Samaritan woman.

Using Jesus and the Samaritan woman as our model, we will explore:

  • The cultural competencies necessary for racial healing to take place.
  • How the issues of power and privilege impact racial reconciliation.
  • The steps you must take to cross cultures and build bridges across the racial divide.
  • The connection between spiritual transformation and reconciliation.
  • Why so many people fail at racial and ethnic reconciliation and how you can succeed!

With more than 25 years of experience in the field of racial, ethnic, and gender reconciliation, Dr. Salter McNeil was recently named by Christianity Today as one of the 50 women to watch for in her work shaping the church and culture.More about Dr. Salter McNeil.
