JustFaith Ministries is hosting two special “Acting for Justice While Sheltering in Place” webinars this month featuring Vicki Lott, Ph.D. of the Pax Christi USA National Council, and Johnny Zokovitch, Executive Director, Pax Christi USA. More information is below…
On Thursday, July 9, 7:00 p.m. EDT, Vicki Lott, PhD, Board member of JustFaith Ministries and long-time educator on racism, will give a presentation entitled, “Intersectionality of Faith and Race.” In this webinar, we’ll take a deeper dive into historic factors of systemic racism — not just in policing — but the failed intersectionality of many systems that led to the creation of this “perfect storm.” We’ll look at the complex role that our faith played along the way. And we’ll look to that faith as a source of truth-telling, healing, reconciliation, and redemption. Register here.
On Thursday, July 23, 7:00 p.m. EDT, Johnny Zokovitch, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA, will give a presentation entitled, “Discipleship in a Time of Radical Change.” In this webinar, we’ll explore how we follow Jesus in a moment when the call is for deep, difficult, radical change. The murder of George Floyd and the protests that have arisen in response to his murder, as well as how the pandemic and the policies of the current administration have highlighted the deep-rooted disparities in racial inequity in the U.S., present stark discipleship choices for White U.S. Christians.
