WMC and St. Matthews UMC Partnership
As a next step to summer forum, “Is the Church the Answer to the Ethnic Divide?,” WMC will join with St. Matthew’s UMC to offer individuals an opportunity for “intentional conversations” with someone of another race. “Our goal is to promote a growing understanding of each other’s culture, and move toward improving racial harmony” stated Lea Williams, a planning group member.
The goal is to find a “Let’s Talk” partner with whom to share periodic conversations over a period of weeks from February through April. Participants can schedule their conversations in whatever manner they desire – coffee, lunch, a stroll in a park, - with a partner, and will be offered questions to guide their conversations.
We envision that friendships can be formed, mutual understanding will grow, and our community and our respective churches will move toward more intercultural harmony. For more information, contact Pastor Pam, Pastor Jill, or Lea Williams.
