Intentional Listening: How to Love Your Neighbor in the Midst of Terror

Event Information

Thursday, September 12, 2019
5:30 PM
First Presbyterian Church
Free and open to the public.

Do you love your neighbor who does not look like you or worship like you? Why is racism, colorism, and xenophobia manifesting and killing children, women and men in Latino communities, African American churches, Muslim mosques, Jewish synagogues, and Sikh temples? What does the scripture, “...Love your neighbor as you love yourself” mean in a society where domestic terrorism and hatred is practiced? Join us to take a critical look at what it means today in the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, to deliberately work together to “Become the Beloved Community.”
