This year’s seminar will focus on Race, Power, and Privilege, and takes place on Saturday, April 23 at St. Matthew United Methodist Church, 600 East Florida Street, Greensboro.
Traditionally held on a weekday, the planners for the seminar decided this year to shift to a Saturday to offer more grassroots activists the opportunity to attend. The program is designed for lay people and clergy alike.
The daylong event will feature worship led by the Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearmen, the Council’s incoming president and senior pastor of St. Philip African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Greensboro.
After worship, Nelson Johnson of the Beloved Community will moderate a structured conversation between Eboni Marshall Turman, Assistant Research Professor of Theological Ethics and Black Church Studies and Director of the Office of Black Church Studies Duke Divinity School, and Timothy Tyson, Visiting Professor of American Christianity and Southern Culture at Duke.
Lunch will follow and include the presentation of the Distinguished Service Award. Participants can then choose from two workshops prior to the afternoon’s benediction.
