Live online at cor.org/live, followed by breakout discussions on Zoom

Join Rev. Cheryl Jefferson Bell and local thought leaders as we continue the holy conversation around what it means to be the Beloved Community. During this three-week series we will explore definitions of some of the words and phrases used in Resurrection’s Vision for Racial Justice, and discuss practical ways to build community and address injustice.
