I made a goal to develop relationships with several African American friends the last few years. I asked one of these friends to mentor and coach me on his experience as a black man growing up on the south side of Chicago. I attended his mega-church with him last year with 5000 worshipers. I was one of 10 or so white people. What a learning experience! We sometimes make this too hard. It's really about connecting with others different then you and listening to their story. I still am learning and have a long way to go on my journey.
Marlene Vogelsang

William Kemp

Gal 2:11-14
William Kemp
01:00:56
11 But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. 12 For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party.[a] 13 And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”
Kirk Neugebauer
01:01:34
Don’t apologize this was great
Kevin Hohnstadt

Katie Baynard

Dr. John, would you apply the 6 steps you presented earlier with student ministry? Or would you encourage some modification? Student Ministry means 7th-12th grades.
Alfredo Bullen
01:16:56
Thank you for addressing the BLM issue
jaquia stacy

Joshua Rusert

Yup, politics is not an idol. We are not defined by one political party!
Russ Mains
01:22:59
Absolutely; folks from diverse races, political, and socioeconomic backgrounds must meet on COMMON GROUND; primarily our UNITY in Christ. CHURCH MUST LEAD!!!
Rachel Rotert
01:23:48
Yes, yes, yes! "Work within it to redeem it." Thank you so much, Dr. Nunes for sharing such powerful stories and points!

01:24:27
I'm working on listening more and more so appreciate this opportunity and Dr. Nunes' words and hope we can meet again soon!
Alfredo Bullen
01:25:24
yes! we are to quiet..but that's changing by the grace of God
Joshua Rusert
01:26:39
Watch the movie Just Mercy - It is free right now on many platforms
David Mennicke
01:26:42
This has been a remarkable presentation--Biblically and theologically founded to respond to the realities of the world--the Church has a great chance to share the leavening of Christ for all people.
Paul Nelson
01:26:58
I second that about Just Mercy-eye opening
Catherine Steffen
01:27:58
I once heard Nunes say that LCMS stands for "Love Covers a Multitude of Sins" which is worth thinking about. We can confess our sins!

01:29:34
Wow! This conversation has been rich! Amen!
