Soul to Soul

Soul to Soul is an ongoing diversity and inclusion project that addresses issues of power, privilege and racism.

Beginning in 2005 as Souls of White Folks when a group of clergy met for eight-week dialogue sessions, this work has created numerous off-shoot programs for Mecklenburg Ministries, including:

Interfaith Clergy Habitat Build – the first in the nation
Clergy Lunches – during which clergy address current issues from a faith perspective
Friday Friends – during which participants paired up with someone not like themselves and met once a month for six months
Souls of Our Students – a documentary that discusses diversity issues in high school
Souls of Our Teachers – a documentary inspiring commitment to high-need schools
Soul of Our Neighbors – a documentary addressing the fears and facts of affordable housing
Souls of White Folks – clergy sessions, lay curriculum and leaders guide
Spectrum – discussion among conservative and liberal Christian clergy
