Next Book Study on Plantation Jesus

The Eastern PA Conference’s Congregational Development Team (CDT) and Commission on Religion & Race (CORR) will collaborate again in October on a second conference-wide book study that focuses on racism in America. The weekly study, via Zoom, will gather readers for lively discussion on Wednesdays, Oct. 6, 13, 20 and 27, from 11 AM to 12 noon, to explore the racially conscious 2018 book Plantation Jesus .  

Writer Ande Cumbo-Floyd co-wrote the book with Rick Wilson, an Emmy Award-winning media producer and writer who died in 2014, and Skot Welch, founder of Global Bridgebuilders, a consulting firm focusing on cultural transformation and inclusion. Wilson and Welch co-hosted the popular radio program Radio in Black and White.

Cumbo-Floyd will lead sessions of the study, which, like the book, will cover challenging topics related to race, ethnicity, American Christianity and cultural competence. Cumbo-Floyd led CORR members in a deeply insightful, candid study and discussion of Plantation Jesus this summer, leading the commission to recommend it to the entire conference.

CORR members will facilitate the study, which will include breakout rooms for small-group discussion. CORR and CDT together will offer free e-books to the first 50 study registrants.

The book is available for purchase in paperback, Kindle and Audible formats.
