Saturday, March 28, 2020 - 9:00am to 1:00pm

Due to the ongoing health concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we regretfully announce the postponement of this event. Please check back for more details later. 

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

(Isaiah 1:17)

This event will include two main components:

  • Bishop Lynn Thrush will interview Pastor Tracie Hunter and State Senator Cecil Thomas about their experiences of faith and race and how that interacts with the court and prison system. Tracie Hunter is the pastor of Western Hills Brethren in Christ in Cincinnati OH and  became the first African American elected to Hamilton County's (OH) Juvenile Court in 2010.
  • Following the interview, the group will participate in a time of learning and discussion shaped by the themes and issues in the interview.   

Lunch will be provided at noon. 

Participants will come away with a better understanding of the narrative of racial difference, learn more about Pastor Tracie’s story, and be equipped with some Biblical study tools on this topic to bring back to their congregations. 

Please RSVP for this free event by March 24 to Krista Dutt at
