Greetings!The annual Student Congress on Racial Reconciliation presses forward into its 16th year. We look forward to what the Lord has in store for us and continue to look to Him for His grace as we step up to the divine mandate of justice and reconciliation in this world. Through the years SCORR has been a catalyst for students, faculty and staff to gather and learn from one another through dialogue, prayer and worship. The need is as great as ever for us to continue to grow and pursue the transformation our institutions need.
The prophet Isaiah declares the scope of God’s love and purpose where he writes, “for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah 56:7). As Jesus was cleansing the temple, he quotes this passage from Isaiah emphasizing the house of God was to include the marginalized and outcasts of society.
This year’s theme focuses on how the people of God, whether in the church or in Christian Colleges/Universities, should exemplify spiritual disciplines in community across cultures and socio-economic lines. We pray that you will be blessed as you engage in the variety of workshops, keynote sessions, worship opportunities and fellowship with one another. We earnestly desire that transformation occurs within us so that the world will be transformed through us.
Let’s prepare for a time of discovery and fun.
Founder and Director, Student Congress on Racial Reconciliation
