W. Don McClure Lectures and World Mission Initiative, Continuing Ed/ Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

Wednesdays, October 7, 14, 21, & 28
7:30 p.m.

In this time of racial unrest, it is important for people of faith to know what we are called to be and where we are called to stand. We need to learn how to talk to one another and to those outside our faith community. Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, through the McClure Lecture Series and World Mission Initiative promises to give us tools to engage in truthful conversation on how our understanding of race influences our mission in the world. Westminster will host a follow-up conversation for members “attending” the lecture series. To learn more and to register click here.
