RSVP to attend. The conversation will be facilitated by Greg and Helms Jarrell of Charlotte’s QC F amily Tree. Greg is the author of the forthcoming book, “A Riff of Love: Notes on Community and Belonging,” also available in Goodness Gracious! and elsewhere. For child care October 23, email lrsmit@mpumc.org.

Jonathan, who lives in Durh am, talks about the coming conversation: “Since this book c ame out in the Spring, I’ve been facilitating conversations around the country about how america’s history of white supremacy has compromised Christianity, and how, at the s ame time, the faith of Jesus has always challenged racial injustice. I’m looking forward to this conversation because I’ve seen how it can bring healing and a fresh vitality to the gospel message, especially for people who are ready to face the truth about our present moral crisis in america.
