Charlottesville's Race Unity Week continued Tuesday night by looking at race relations from a church perspective.

"Restoring the Image: a Biblical Theology of Race" took place at Portico Church in town.

Two pastors spoke and participated in a panel discussion, fielding audience questions and answers, all to look at what Christianity says about race relations and solutions.

"We can't just be on the sidelines anymore. The church has to take responsibility to be a part of racial unity and racial reconciliation. So, tonight is incredibly important," said Justin Conger, the lead pastor of Ministry Leadership at Portico.

Wednesday, Race Unity Week continues with Race Unity Day. If you'd like to attend a Race Unity Week Event visit their webpage here.
