Remind and Renew 2016: Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins

Friday I posted excerpts of William J. Barber II’s address to the Remind and Renew Conference. Now comes a great article from the Tulsa World covering Wednesday night’s sermon by Sharon Watkins, General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)*. The lead paragraph by reporter Bill Sherman:

“Racism in America is real. It is sin. And it will be tough to eradicate. “

On both the World’s webpage and our sharing of the article on Facebook, the article has prompted comments-section trolling, showing how deeply challenging any discussion on racism is and how deeply people’s beliefs and misconceptions are rooted.

What do you think of Watkins’ comments? Try not to troll. 🙂

Thanks,
