Beyond Apathy and Rage - Next Steps in Overcoming Race, Part 2

Description: Lecture given Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 2:00 PM at Abilene Christian University: "In many ways, attitudes toward race have changed substantially over the last 40 years. Still, while overt racism is less acceptable, more subtle and unspoken forms of racism still persist. How do we move beneath the surface in matters of race so that God's peace might be reflected in how we treat one another? J.C. Thomas will begin our time together with unforgettable monologues on white apathy and black rage. A panel will respond to the presentations and bring others into the conversation. Finally, a group of ACU faculty and staff will talk about their journey over the past two years to understand one another better."

While the history of the Chinese church is one of persecution, it is also a history of vibrant revival, mission movements, and house churches."
