Dr. McKinney will explore the current uses of the terms “white supremacy” and “anti-racist.” She will provide the quiet, thoughtful space we need as Christians to explore our understanding of racial injustice and needed change. She will lay out a path that RLC can take in order to develop tools that address challenges in our church and community.
