Process & Faith/Twin Cities presents: A Neighborhood Congregation Responds to Turbulent Times

Sat, May 15, 2021; 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT

When riots broke out in Minneapolis in the wake of the May 2020 murder of George Floyd, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church–located just blocks from the destroyed 3rd police precinct–found itself at the center of the riots. This event shares the story of one congregation’s response to this historic challenge and explores how insights gleaned from a process-relational theolgy can aid our understanding and help us heed the call to hospitality, justice, and racial understanding.
