The recent murder of George Floyd at the hands of police reveals again the deep racial wounds of our society. This a significant time for us to reflect faithfully, sincerely, and honestly on our connection to the racial wounds and God’s desire for justice for all. As an expression of renewed and heightened commitment to this cause, Second Presbyterian has challenged each member to participate in a 21-day exploration into faith and racial justice. The 21-day Challenge is a first step in our re-commitment to actively participate in dismantling systemic racism. Faith on Tap will introduce and explore this opportunity and discuss what it can mean for our life and faith.
