Worship Matters: Episode 48 – Overcoming Racism through Developing Leaders
By Cynthia Wilson
Worship Team Executive Director, Dr. Cynthia Wilson invites Pastor and Musician the Rev. Marilyn Thornton to share about her wide-ranging ministry in the local church, as editor of African American Resources through the United Methodist Publishing House, and as Director/Campus Ministry at the Wesley Foundation at Fisk University. It is there that Rev. Thornton developed, with the Wesley Foundations at Tennessee State University, Belmont University, and Austin-Peay State University, the Elijah Project. The Elijah Project is designed to help young leaders develop relationships as they examine the impact of racism and white supremacist ideology on society. Join us as we hear how the fundamental Christian value we call “the golden rule” became a way of opening eyes and working for change.
