Under Our Skin



Are you prepared to address the challenging issues associated with race?  In February 2017 national thought leaders gathered in Tampa, FL to discuss the intersection of race and faith in America today.  It is the hope of the panelists that the discussion of that evening moves from ideas to action.  


Join us for an airing of the Under Our Skin simulcast that addresses race relations and the church.





Saturday, Oct. 7th    8am – 12:30pm







Then, lets have a real discussion with our peers to address how we, as a church, can learn how to unite and share our differences.

Under Our Skin: Getting Real about Race–And Getting Free from the Fears and Frustrations That Divide Us……………Benjamin Watson, Ken Petersen (Contributor)

Can it ever get better? This is the question Benjamin Watson is asking. In a country aflame with the fallout from the racial divide–in which Ferguson, Charleston, and the Confederate flag dominate the national news, daily seeming to rip the wounds open ever wider–is there hope for honest and healing conversation? For finally coming to understand each other on issues that are ultimately about so much more than black and white?
