Becoming Bridge Builders

We live in a world where at times the negativity and hopelessness around us keep us in a dark place. This podcast is designed to discover ways to build bridges between the rivers of division and misunderstanding. The focus will be on racial healing and reconciliation. To accomplish this enormous task I will introduce knowledgeable guests to address the issues in the black and other ethnic communities that most people are not aware of or don't completely understand. Only truth can build the bridge to wholeness. We will tackle tough topics and issues with truth and optimism. Hosted by B. Keith Haney.
