Preaching about Racism: A Guide for Faith Leaders - Webinar


Of all the activities that come with being a minister, sermon preparation can loom largest, especially when it's a tough topic. You’ve got to address racism with your white congregation from the pulpit. But how do you preach about this topic thoughtfully and sensitively?

In this webinar, preaching professor and pastor Carolyn Helsel will share insights from her upcoming book, Preaching about Racism: A Guide for Faith Leaders. In this follow-up to Anxious to Talk about It: Helping White Christians Talk Faithfully about Racism, Helsel provides strategies and a theoretical framework for crafting biblical and theological sermons that incorporate insights from social sciences and psychology, gleaned from more than a decade of writing and teaching about racism.
