Bishop Laurie invites you to watch on Facebook Live “A Conversation on Race”

Bishop Laurie will host a conversation with members of our United Methodist family in the Iowa Connection. Speakers include Rev. LaTonya Calderon, Rev. Abraham Funchess, Grace Kiboko, Rev. Dr. Michel Lundula, and Rev. Dr. Jacqueline Thompson who will each share in this time of listening and learning.

This conversation is the first in a series of events intended to help all of us to see, listen, and learn from our Black brothers and sisters in Christ. This will be a conversation intended to elevate and hear from voices that continue to be silenced.

We hope that by attending this event you will gain a new understanding of the injustices experienced by the Black community and gain further understanding of how to create a more equitable world.

We pray this conversation begins a new process of learning, justice, and healing.


This will be a conversation that will broadcast on the Iowa UM Church Facebook page at beginning at 6 p.m. on June 15, 2020. Soon after the completion, a recording of the discussion will be made available.

Check out for more information on the panelists for this conversation.  We hope you will join this conversation.
