Reconciliation is an increasingly significant topic for pastors. In our country, racial tensions are high and ethnic diversity is increasing. How can preaching be a means of reconciliation? How can pastors lead their churches in gospel-centered obedience? How are we to think about race and racial problems in a biblically, theologically informed way? This event will help bring these questions to bear.
