About STA The Swaziland Tourism Authority (STA) was established by an act of parliament, the Tourism Authority, Act of 2001. The General Commission on Religion and Race invites United Methodist Christians of goodwill to engage in conversations about race, racial identity and the challenges that come when racial prejudices and bias are combined with institutional power and privilege, typically defined as racism. Our shame, fear, race, anger, frustrations, confusion, personal biases, separation and segregation—including that which is institutional, personal and familial—often render it nearly impossible for even well-meaning people to “get at” how we feel about and how we can move through racialized differences toward becoming God’s beloved community.
The highlight of the event is the reed-giving ceremony – one of Africa’s largest and most vibrant cultural sights.
Estimates are more reliable the closer a site is to being ranked #1.
Global traffic ranks of 100,000 are subject to large fluctuations and should be considered rough estimates.
As we read and watch news reports, observe and participate in the happenings in our cities and towns, and assess the racial dynamics in our communities and in our churches, we believe that Christians can and must bring our understanding of the power of God’s reconciliation and God’s justice to bear on the conversations and the situations in which we find ourselves.
So, for the next year, the General Commission on Religion and Race will release one or two video discussion-starters each month for your use.
