Whether or not you agree with the Zimmerman verdict, the church can’t argue that race relations have become strained and that young people of color are feeling it. Join our panel in a discussion of God’s Word regarding relationships and how ministry workers can engage in dialogue with young people who feel marginalized and/or alienated by policy.
