Can our communities truly thrive? For everyone? Everywhere? What will it take? What can I do?
Dr. Curtiss DeYoung, CEO of the Minnesota Council of Churches (MCC) and longtime friend of the Pilgrim Center will lead us in an interactive conversation to explore these urgent questions. The MCC is currently launching a 10-year community focused Reconciliation Initiative in Minnesota to repair foundations that have been devastated for generations.
