This audio recording contains a discussion on church and violence led by George Webber, Ronald English, Rev. Hazaiah Williams, Dr. Coleman, and Dr. James Cone, respectively. George Webber begins by talking about looking upon the religious community as a “vein of ore” and argues that the Christian calling is to struggle against “the principalities of evil.” Ronald English discusses the necessity of pursuing the same activity of Christ to truly be an imitator of Christ. Rev. Williams responds by discussing the role and actions of the church. Dr. Coleman asserts that "black consciousness" is not taken seriously, which is “the revelation of Jesus Christ” in America today. Lastly, there is a question and answer period.
