Jo and Steph continue the series on Stigmas and race today with Edrin Williams, who was born in South Carolina and now a pastor in The Sanctuary Covenant church in the Twin Cities.

Listen in to hear how growing up in the South impacted Edrin’s childhood and raised early questions about race and how we can all become more inter-culturally competent as we lead others from different backgrounds and races.


Also find Edrin on:

Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook!


Discussion questions:

1) Take some times to think through the prejudices you probably hold.  When you think about people from different backgrounds (white, black, asian, latino…) what roles / professions do you naturally assign to them?


2) What do you know about your family culture? What is your ethnic story? What is in your roots? Share what you know and investigate further!
