Pastor to discuss “how whiteness has disembodied the biblical narrative Monday.
“White Christian Imagination: How Whiteness has Disembodied the Biblical Narrative” features church planter and senior pastor of Lighthouse Church Dee McIntosh and will take place Monday from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Eastlund Room at Bethel University.
The Bethel Reconciliation Studies program will host the event, which hopes to approach whiteness and its implications on society.
“This work is about, ‘How do we understand this social construction?’” said Tanden Brekke, who teaches a course titled “European American Experiences, Whiteness, and Reconciliation.”
The event is part of the reconciliation course’s guest speaker agenda but is open to the Bethel University community. Brekke hopes students will come with their questions and perspectives.
