For I Don't Want to Run This Race in Vain – Sam Teitel

“As we approach Martin Luther King Day this year, it is clear that there is still a long way to go in the fight against systemic injustice. In this service we will be talking about building relationships across religious and social boundaries for the purpose of doing this work, how we can form these relationships, and why they are important.” (Sam Teitel)
