June 2, 2016 / By Kathleen Rubino
Blenda Smith, chair of the Conference Commission on Race and Religion (CORR), presented the CORR report. During the report, Smith announced the Upper New York Conference’s partnership with Kaleidoscope Institute, which strives to provide resources to equip church leaders to create sustainable churches and communities.
Kaleidoscope Institute will come to Upper New York this fall to help equip Conference leadership to be “culturally competent.”
Smith mentioned, during the report, that former conferences had various opportunities to grow in sensitivity and diversity, and it is now time for Upper New York to take that plunge.
“We have work to do personally and as the Church,” she said.
In addition to presenting the report, Smith showed a video about racism today that showed the viewpoints of three experts.
