JACKSON — Local religious leaders gathered Monday night to talk race. The multi-denominational discussion was held at Forest Heights United Methodist Church in west Jackson. Ten leaders and nearly 100 guests met with the goal of breaking barriers, regardless of religion. The group said if they use Christ as the common ground they can reach more people. “When can all come together to the cross, and we can put our Christianity first before our ethnicity and our politics and values,” said the Rev. Russell Morrow of Forrest Heights United Methodist Church. “We perhaps can truly be salt and light as Jesus spoke about.” This was the first time leaders of the 10 churches held a meeting for this purpose.
