Racism: Personal Sin, Structural Evil, or Both?
How can we as faithful Christians, think of sin both as personal and corporate? And how can our baptismal covenants help us live into this reality? Join the Rev. Dr. Gerald McKenny as he uses the relevant topic of racism to answer this question. Q&A then wine and cheese reception to follow. Please join us for Choral Evensong or the Uptown Contemporary service at 5 pm.
