Pacific Union “All God’s People,” June 5, 2020 S4:E22

In this week’s All God’s People:

The United States is experiencing the most serious racial unrest since the 1960s, as lawful rallies, marches, and protests of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on Memorial Day, have taken place all across the US and our region, but have been also been marred by violence.

We had the opportunity to talk with Pastor Virgil Childs, the director of the African-American Ministries of the Pacific Union Conference, earlier this week, and to get his perspective on what is happening around us.
