presbyterian conference for seminarians of color
As civil rights activists gathered in Washington, D.C., on Friday for the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, Americans were reminded of the day’s significance. It was on August 28, 1963, when the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech during that landmark event.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) recently announced the launch of the #Give828 campaign to benefit the Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries.
The Conference for Seminarians Color was the first Presbyterian Young Women’s Leadership Development event Ekama Eni ever attended. Turns out the conference held each year at the Children Defense Fund’s Alex Haley Farm in Clinton, Tennessee was just the experience she’d been looking for.
When Edward Byron Elam, Ryan Atkinson and Ralph Lowe arrived in Clinton, Tennessee, last year to participate in Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries’ Conference for Seminarians of Color held at the Children’s Defense Fund’s Haley Farm, they had no idea that they would connect with individuals with whom they remain close one year later.
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 reminds us of this: “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.” (NRSV)
