Bishop's Convocation on Race and Reconciliation

Saturday, April 14, 2018

Hosted by

Bishop Lewis has called a convocation on Race and Reconciliation on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at Annandale United Methodist Church. It will begin with registration and a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and end with Communion at 3:45 p.m. Lunch will be served.

The convocation will empower participants to become life-long learning disciples who will be able to conduct the difficult conversations we all need to have related to issues of racial division, justice, and God’s call to ministries of reconciliation and peace.

The keynote speaker for the event is Romal Tune, whose ministry has impacted the lives of thousands through examining their own lives and stories in transparent and honest ways; in short, to “help hurting people find healing.” Dr. Douglas Powe of Wesley Theological Seminary said of Tune, “If you are looking for a powerful speaker that will challenge how you think and touch people’s hearts, Romal is your man. He has an innate ability to weave stories from his life with the realities we face today in ministry in a way that challenges and gives hope.” More informatioin about the speaker is available at
