Race and Gospel PANEL

Wednesday, July 1, 2020
7 pm to 9 pm



We, CEC, are clearly a Chinese-predominant church. But Scripture just as clearly teaches us to break down dividing walls.

Ephesians 2:13-14 “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.”

We are still working out the full meaning and implications of these verses for our church. But now more than ever, we need to ask questions and discuss how God wants us to be open to people different than us, and what role our church may play in San Diego.

One step in this process is an Aletheia Panel Discussion entitled “How to Approach Race through the Lens of the Gospel,” scheduled for Wednesday, July 1, 2020, 7 to 9pm via Zoom. Jason Cha, Director of Intercultural Programs at Westmont College, will provide teaching and reflections on race and faith. Other guest panelists include Elbert Mock and Ryana Fisher, family friends of Daniel and Antoinette who will provide sharing on their experiences as African American Christians.

Our panelists hope for an evening of teaching and interactive discussion. In order to help them prepare, please enter any questions you might have below on the Google Form. The panelists understand this is a new topic for many of us, so feel free to ask any and all questions. We hope and pray the evening will provide a space for us to listen, learn, discuss, and grow, both individually and as the church.
