Facing up to Ferguson

Facing up to Ferguson | THINKING PRESBYTERIAN | Scoop.it

Ferguson. - Northminster is now merged with First Presbyterian Church of Ferguson. The Stocks remain active in race relations work and a local ministerial alliance made up of several denominations that coordinates worship, education and social services for the community.


Since the shooting, the alliance is working with another group of local clergy, most of whom are black. That group is taking the lead in organizing marches and vigils.


“Faith communities have been really out there,” said Carleton Stock. “Black clergy have really been leading the way. They can really play a large role. There’s a lot of respect for clergy in the black community.”
