Half a hundred, including members of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Chapter of RCC, gathered recently to hear 2018 Wilbur Award winner, Rev. Dr. Michael Waters, speak on topic of Social Justice, Hope and Empowerment. Dr. Waters presentation was sponsored by the Gusto! program at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas. He won the Wilbur award for his non-fiction book titled, Stakes is High: Race, Faith, and Hope for America.
Dr. Waters opened with the honest comment that in the morning’s presentation his responsibility “was not to make you comfortable.” He went on to tell attendees that, “If I disturb, then perhaps that will motivate to action.”
