Fearless Dialogues fosters heartfelt conversations

Methodist Theological School in Ohio will host Fearless Dialogues at 7 p.m. March 18 in the Alford Centrum on the MTSO campus, 3081 Columbus Pike in Delaware. It is free and open to the public. No registration is required.

Gregory C. Ellison II, associate professor of pastoral care and counseling at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, was moved to initiate a conversation at Emory in the wake of the July 2013 verdict that found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder charges in the lethal shooting of Trayvon Martin. The conversations bring together individuals from many walks of life in a creative way to honor the difficult.

An Atlanta native, Ellison earned his undergraduate degree from Emory, and holds Master of Divinity and Ph.D. degrees in pastoral theology from Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the author of Fearless Dialogues: A New Movement for Justice and Cut Dead But Still Alive: Caring for African American Young Men.
