At Wayzata Free, we want to be a place to have tough and uncomfortable conversations where we can share honestly and openly. On June 7, we had a panel discussion with a variety of presenters about race and the recent tension and riots. The hope in pulling this group together was to bring this important conversation into our midst with some of our own people. We, the Church, need to model conversation – how to listen, seek to understand and learn respectfully from one another even if we disagree. Our hope is that this is more than just a conversation. We don’t want this to be merely ‘talk’ but a conversation that drives two things:
AWARENESS AND ACTION
- Awareness is vital. Find learning opportunities on our resource list below.
- Action takes place as we serve and seek to make a tangible difference in our community. Click here for a list of ways you can serve.
We are not called by God to do extraordinary things, but to do ordinary things with extraordinary love.
