This week we begin a new sermon series based on the book by Rudy Ramus, I’m Black, I’m Christian, I’m Methodist. It marks the first Sunday in African American History Month as we delve into the continuum of spiritual faith-development and resilience that people of color exude in our lives. Watch the video below to learn more.


In January 2021, editor Rudy Rasmus and the writers of I’m Black. I’m Christian. I’m Methodist. joined M. Garlinda Burton in a conversation about the book. This discussion included topics such as What Has Racism Cost the Church?; Intersections of Race, Gender, and LGBTQIA+ Identity; and Ministry and Racism.
