Dr. John Perkins addresses hundreds at CPA Perspectives
Dr. John Perkins spoke at Friday night's Perspectives: A Community Gathering for the City to an audience of over 700 people from the CPA and Nashville community.
As the final event in the series, the night featured a Q&A with Dr. Perkins on his life's work: gospel-centered, Church-led, Biblical reconciliation in our culture.

'It scares me. We're not talking about togetherness,' Perkins said. 'That doesn't improve the issue.'
