Worship Matters Episode 24 - Dr. Eric Barreto
By Derek Weber
In this episode of the Worship Matters podcast, Director of Preaching Ministries, Dr. Derek Weber talks with Dr. Eric Barreto, Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary. Dr. Barreto wrote “Preaching About Racism in America: What Comes Next?” which was first published on ChurchAnew.org. Many preachers took the bold step of preaching about the racism pandemic after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the subsequent protests that sprang up around the world (see: Sermons on Anti-Racism). Dr. Barreto argues that while a good beginning, there is more work to be done. Listen in on the conversation for some answers as to what’s next.
