Vital Conversations: A Video Series on Realities of Racism


Please register now to participate in this event.

The Vital Conversations series continues on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 9 p.m. ET with The Rev. Cynthia Moore Koikoi as she explores the ways in which the Church can build bridges instead of walls within surrounding communities. Rev. Koikoi is the district superintendent for the Baltimore Metropolitan District in the Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference. In her role as district superintendent she continually challenges churches to reach out and develop relationships with the surrounding community.

The video will begin at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 4 and will be followed by a live conversation with Rev. Koikoi, where you can ask questions and engage in conversation.

Previous videos include Dr. Robin DiAngelo’s “Deconstructing White Privilege,” The Rev. Dr Miquel De La Torre’s “Church: Building the Beloved Community,” The Rev. Glen Chebon Kernell Jr.’s “Ongoing Acts of Repentance,” The Rev. Dr. David Anderson Hooker’s “Meaningful Conversations about Race,” Dr. Phillip Klinkner’s “Continued Struggles in American Race Relations,” and The Rev. Dr. Pamela Lightsey’s “Intersections of Oppression.”

GCORR is building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
