GCORR Announces Podcast Series, Sac-Area Open Forum

November 12, 2009

The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) wants you to know about a podcast series that features an elder from the California-Nevada Annual Conference. The Rev. Kelvin Sauls, who is appointed to Extension Ministry, is featured on two of the podcasts, "It's Not What You Say But" and "Immigration and the Church" - both of which can be downloaded from the GCORR website.

This new podcast series creates a platform for dialogue, introspection, and action to help foster awareness and justice. GCORR has assembled a group of lay persons and members of clergy from around the UM Connection and around the country, to discuss a number of topics relating to race, ethnicity, and inclusiveness - from the perspective of the faith community. Conversation starters are available for each podcast.
 
GCORR hopes the podcasts will inspire a renewed spirit of racial and ethnic understanding among us all as we move toward building a beloved community of justice, healing, and hope.
