Embrace Conference

The Embrace Conference focuses on racial reconciliation and justice through a Wesleyan theological understanding. Sponsored each year by the Office of Intercultural Affairs, the conference is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to come together and learn from scholars and practitioners in the field. We have been blessed to have many great speakers in our midst such as Dr. Christina Edmondson, author of Faithful Antiracism: Moving Past Talk to Systemic Change, Bishop Leonard Fairley, author of Who Shall Hear My Voice, Dr. Soon Chan-Rah, author of Prophetic Lament: A Call for Justice in Troubled Times, Dr. Michael Emerson, author of Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America, Bishop Claude Alexander and Dr. Mac Pier, co-authors of Required: God’s Call to Justice, Mercy, and Humility to Overcome Racial Division.

Hospitality, mutuality, redemptive social action, and grace-filled reconciliation are among the themes that are discussed at length with an opportunity for every one to participate in a discussion with conference speakers of the year.
