To whet your appetite for our June issue, which features articles that provide insight and encouragement about racial reconciliation and the church, and which also features 11 leaders who tell about how they are bridging the racial divide, we thought we would recommend a video on the subject filmed earlier this week at Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan College in Tennessee.

Dr. Eric Barreto, Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament at Princeton (NJ) Theological Seminary, spoke Monday night as part of the Myron Taylor Lectureship. His topic was “A People for God”s Name: Race, Ethnicity, and the Bible Today.”

The lecture was open to the community and is one you won”t want to miss. (Thanks to Phyllis Fox of Milligan College for bringing it to our attention.)

And keep returning to our website, which will begin featuring articles under the theme “Bridging the Racial Divide” on June 9.
