Ferguson Congregations "Lay It on the Table," Taking a Step Toward Honest Dialogue -- Sightings (Rick Nutt)
With the lack of indictment against a White police officer whose actions led to the death of another Black man, there is need for a conversation about race.

In this piece by Rick Nutt, we hear about efforts in Ferguson to do just that. What can we learn from laying it on the table that would lead to understanding and a new opportunities to build relationships with each other -- whatever our color, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or politics?
