"Take Me To the Water: A Conversation about Racism, Imagination, and Faith"  (Room 214)  About a year ago, I was asked to write an article for the Insights journal of Austin Theological Seminary on racism and the problem of whiteness. Racism is part of our national DNA, and each time we think this cancer is in recession it rears its head with a renewed and ugly force. Writing this article was an opportunity for me to explore my story, to understand better what it means to live in the world as a white person, and to think through how we can heal the disease of racism from a theological perspective. I invite you to join me for a conversation about these things and, if you would like, to read the article available as a pdf link or pick up a copy at the reception desk.   
Teacher: Rev. Dr. Patrick Johnson
