Act Justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly With Your God


The recent events in Ferguson, MO have exposed divisions and injustices across our country.  We are presented with an opportunity to more fully participate in God's work of reconciliation. Led by SPU faculty, this campus event will offer historical and theological context to process the recent events in Ferguson as they relate to race relations.  

We invite you to join us in discourse and reflection.  Q&A will follow the main session.
