The Courage to Change
It’s not easy admitting when we’ve done something wrong or hurt someone, either as a nation or as an individual. Racism is one of the biggest hurts we all have to face. How do we find the courage to face what needs to be changed as a nation and in ourselves? Note: There are opportunities to discuss in small groups later in the week.
