Our society has been wrestling intensely with the injustice experienced by the black community in our country. Many are rightfully seeking justice and change. How can Asian American Christians be part of this dialogue? Where do we fit in God’s redemptive work around race and justice in our nation? How do we deal with the racism that we have experienced?
In efforts to listen and learn we have invited four prominent Asian American pastors and leaders to join us this Friday, June 12, 7:30-8:30pm, in a moderated discussion. Please visit and invite others to join us on our GCCC YouTube channel.
