It’s been more than five decades since the inception of the Civil Rights movement in America, a lifetime since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s nonviolent revolution against the inequality and injustice that permeated the American South. But as one Gardner-Webb Divinity student recently put it, “there is a residue of racial tension still lingering in our churches and communities, and it is ours to decide what to do about it.” An interracial group of dozens of Gardner-Webb Divinity students and professors recently took up that challenge with fervor by sharing in a conversation titled “The Future of the Church: A Listening Session on Racial Reconciliation.”
