7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern
Leader: Frank Thomas
This is a dangerous webinar to help preachers preach dangerous sermons and respond to trying times by utilizing the four characteristics of the moral imagination. Preachers will recover and reimagine the leadership role of the church for the sake of justice and peace for all. The webinar is honestly prophetic and daringly hopeful.
