Join us on Friday and Saturday, February 3 & 4, as we welcome the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Augustine to our diocesan convention for two special sessions on racial reconciliation and the American church. Each of these two in-person sessions are open to all – delegates, visitors, and the wider public.  They will also be livestreamed and recorded for viewing later.

Union Ave. Books will be onsite to sell copies of Rev. Dr. Augustine’s book. For those wishing to read in advance, copies are available from your local bookstores and online retailers.

Session 1 – Friday, February 3, 2:30 pm

Responding with Reconciliation: A Call for Prophetic Leadership to Address White Christian Nationalism and the Great Replacement Theory—Dr. Augustine will provide us with a realistic look at America’s racial, ethnic, and religious divisions and how said divisions are connected to Christian nationalism.  He is calling on church leaders to promote social justice causes that promote the equality of all people. With roots in American history, his presentation will look not just at “the problem,” but will explore how America got there and how the American church can offer solutions. This workshop is largely based on Dr Augustine’s books, Called to Reconciliation: How the Church Can Model Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion (Baker Academic, 2022) and When Prophets Preach: Leadership and the Politics of the Pulpit (Fortress Press, 2023).
