General Commission on Religion and Race will launch the third in a series of TED-styled talk videos entitled Vital Conversations 3: Young Adults, Social Justice and the Church
. GCORR's year long 14 part series is designed to spark grassroots engagement and features study guides for each video that help small groups and individuals delve deeper into social issues.
All 14 presenters are aged 35 or younger and are activists, theologians, preachers, musicians, dancers, seminarians, and business entrepreneurs from Africa, Germany, and the U.S. Each talks about the search for areas that welcome, respect, and engage expressions of faith, spirituality, ideals, and community action.
This new resource offers a platform for young people of faith, and to allow older church members insight into the hopes, concerns, and opinions that some younger adults hold about "traditional" faith communities. Learn more, read the full press release
