About the Event
Join Neighborhood Seminary in a ten-week study of Jamar Tisby's book, The Color of Compromise, facilitated by Rev. Dr. Jim Melson, Tuesdays, January 23 through March 28, 2023 from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. via Zoom.
ABOUT THE BOOK
"There Can Be No Justice Without Truth. In The Color of Compromise, Jemar Tisby takes readers back to the roots of sustained racism and injustice in the American church. Filled with powerful stories and examples of American Christianity's racial past, Tisby's historical narrative highlights the obvious ways people of faith have actively worked against racial justice, as well as the complicit silence of racial moderates. Identifying the cultural and institutional tables that must be flipped to bring about progress, Tisby provides in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people." (from book jacket)
- Each weekly session is two hours and includes:
- Opening Scripture and Prayer
- Presentation correlated to focus chapter of the week from Tisby’s book
- Small group conversations on focus questions in ZOOM breakout rooms
- Large group gathering for closing reflection and prayer
