Religious leaders are coming together, challenging each other to look beyond racial tolerance towards transformation. It is our goal to find a way to transform our community by respecting all God’s people through truth and justice. To that end, religious leaders across our area are seeking to partner with congregations of differing color and culture.
Hanging of Ribbons
Sept. 25 to Nov. 15, 2015
Pulpit/Pastor Exchanges: An exchange of religious leaders between black, white, and brown congregations will take place this fall. We invite your congregation to participate. Join the challenge to tilt the scales toward justice for all. No better place for the conversation to begin than within our places of worship.
Hanging of Ribbons: We plan to blanket the city with black, white and brown ribbons tied around trees. Help hang ribbons at your place of worship, home, school, university, college, and business. Our ribbons will be a constant reminder that a transformed community will occur when we live “beyond tolerance”.
