Only God could have brought together an African-American Baptist pastor from the Liberty Grace Church in Baltimore’s Ashburton neighborhood, and a white Orthodox Jewish rabbi from Pikesville in Baltimore County.—Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg & Rev. Dr. Terris King
How did these two faith leaders join forces and why is it significant? Join these two charismatic leaders as they discuss their unexpected relationship, the initiatives being taken by their congregations, and the positive outcomes that have come from the building of relationships and addressing racism in and around their communities.
