The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) is sponsoring Vital Conversations: A Video Series on Realities of Race and Racism to help congregations and clergy begin their own conversations about matters impacting their lives and communities. The series is a part of a core initiative of GCORR to host forums and develop resources to encourage authentic conversations about the things that often divide and harm the body of Christ.
