A Conversation About Race
Pastor Reggie Hunt of Cornerstone Summit Church in Boone, NC, recently sat down with Jason for an honest discussion about race. With the aftermath our country has experienced since the tragic death of George Floyd on May 25, we wanted to share this conversation between friends.
By Jason English, Pastor at theHeart
I sat with my friend Reggie in his backyard (we’re neighbors), and we talked about race. For those of you who are interested in jumping in and being part of the solution, this is worth the listen. Specifically, if you are a white American who wants to see healing, but you don’t know where to start...start by listening to this one hour and 11-minute conversation between friends.
Reggie and I have been friends for about 11 years. Neighbors for about six years. We have done several partnership teachings regarding racial reconciliation over the years.
Note: this conversation took place shortly after the murder of Ahmaud Arbery and prior to the murder of George Floyd.
