In Today’s Conversation podcast, Pastor John Jenkins describes how the African American church has overcome challenges and stayed the course. He notes the historic role of the Black church in the civil rights movement and how that model can inspire us to action. John candidly shares about his experience as a Black man in America.
NAE President Walter Kim and Pastor Jenkins also discuss:
- Why the most recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others have stirred people in new way;
- How Pastor Jenkins’ church approaches collaboration with churches of different ethnicities;
- How to respond to narratives like “anyone can pull themselves up by the bootstraps”; and
- What is needed for the Church and our country to right racial wrongs.
