Congregations Organizing for Racial Reconciliation (CORR) is an initiative of Madison Square Church, Coit Community Church, and Church of the Servant. Our vision is to build a community of churches and Christian organizations who are agents of reconciliation. The facilitators for this two and one half day workshop are Laura Carpenter and Janice McWhertor.
Workshop Goals: To learn about the nature of racism from a social and Biblical perspective.
- To see connections between our history and its impact on race relations today.
- To understand how we have been socialized by and participate in a race-based society.
- To gain insight into resisting systemic racism through new-found identity in Christ.
