Our first 2021 Theology on Tap, guided by Drew Rick-Miller, will focus on what science can contribute to our discussion of race in the church. Over three meetings, we will use articles and videos to look at race and biology, the history of scientific racism, psychological research on race, implicit bias, and health disparities and race.
