How are the Children?

 

How are the children?

 

A Critical Conversation on the Church and the Opportunity Gap

 

“It’s not rocket science to love a child.”

 

Rev. Dr. Alika Galloway

 

 

 

The African greeting, “How are the children?” reminds us that the health of a community depends upon the well-being of the children. The children in our communities are our children. Too many are not doing well. The academic achievement gap is an opportunity gap for stable housing, employment, community resources, and more.

 

Join other Presbyterians for a Critical Conversation. Explore what we as individuals and as congregations can do to help close the gap. We shall share ideas, hear stories, and discover the creative work being done in our churches.
