BALTIMORE — Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson set the most impressive record of his young NFL career on Thursday night, breaking Michael Vick’s single-season rushing mark by a quarterback.

Jackson, the electric, dual-threat quarterback and NFL Most Valuable Player front-runner, eclipsed his childhood idol in the first quarter against the heavy underdog New York Jets on a chilly night at M&T Bank Stadium. He entered the game needing 23 yards to surpass Vick’s mark of 1,039, set in 2006, and gained 27 on Baltimore’s opening drive, breaking the record on a 5-yard run after a fake to Mark Ingram. He got around the right corner before taking a hard hit that landed him on his back.

The Fox broadcast later cut to a taped segment of Vick congratulating Jackson.

“Lamar, I just want to say congratulations on making history,” Vick said. “One of many milestones that you will surpass in your career. Best of luck in everything that you do. You deserve it. Keep up the hard work, and I’ll always be rooting for you.”

Jackson finished with eight carries for a team-high 86 yards in Baltimore’s 42-21 win. He also completed 15 of 23 passes for 212 yards and increased his NFL-leading total of touchdown passes to 33, tying the franchise season record set by Vinny Testaverde in 1996.

The win clinched the AFC North division title for the Ravens, as they now set their sights on clinching the top spot in the conference.

“I don’t think I care, really,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Jackson’s record. “Michael Vick is great, and I love how he’s supported Lamar. I’m sure it’s something that Lamar will look back on fondly. But right now, he’s got other things to worry about.”

With the way Jackson has run the ball this season — from his spinning around two defenders on a touchdown run in Cincinnati to juking defenders off their feet on a weekly basis — it had long been anticipated that Jackson would shatter Vick’s record. Jackson recently said it would be “an honor” to surpass Vick, reiterating that the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback is his favorite player.

Jackson established the new standard for rushing quarterbacks in staggering style, doing so in his 14th game of the 2019 season (which includes not playing a full fourth quarter in four games). He entered Thursday’s game as the leading rusher for the NFL’s No. 1 ground attack and on pace to rush for 1,251 yards rushing this season.

Jackson, 22, broke the record despite not being at full strength. He was limited in a couple of practices this week and was listed as questionable after injuring his quadriceps five days earlier in a 24-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

What makes Jackson’s achievement even more special is that no one previously got close to Vick’s record, which stood for 13 years. Before Jackson began sprinting past tacklers, the most rushing yards by a quarterback since 2006 came from Russell Wilson, who ran for 849 yards in 2014 — which were 190 yards shy of Vick’s record. Last month, Vick acknowledged he didn’t think his record would ever get broken.

Jackson and Vick are the only quarterbacks to reach 1,000 yards rushing in a season, but they reached that milestone in different ways. Vick’s rushing yards were a near-even split between designed runs (52%) and scrambles (48%), according to ESPN Stats & Information research. With Jackson, 65% of his rushing total is off designed runs, most of which come on zone reads.

Jackson has repeatedly downplayed any individual milestones, saying his focus is on winning. But Jackson’s running has been a major key to Baltimore’s success. When Jackson has run for at least 70 yards in his career, the Ravens are 12-0 (entering Thursday’s game).

What sets Jackson apart from Vick is his ability to also beat teams with his arm. In Vick’s record-setting season, he threw for 2,474 yards and 20 touchdowns (75.7 passer rating). Through 13 games, Jackson had already surpassed those numbers, passing for 2,677 yards and 28 touchdowns (109.2 rating). He could become the first quarterback in NFL history to finish a season with 1,000 yards rushing and a passer rating over 100.

This isn’t the first time Jackson passed a mark of Vick’s. On Dec. 1, against the San Francisco 49ers, Jackson recorded his fourth 100-yard rushing game of the season, breaking a single-season record Vick shared. Last month, Jackson became the fastest quarterback ever in the Madden video-game franchise, with a 96 speed rating, moving him past Vick (who had a 95 speed rating).

Jackson’s popularity has exploded in his first full season as an NFL starting quarterback. He is the current favorite to win NFL MVP, with 9-to-1 odds at Caesars Sportsbook. He tops all players in Pro Bowl balloting. He also watched one of his autographed No. 8 jerseys get presented to Pope Francis a couple of weeks ago.

Jackson has led the Ravens to the best start in franchise history. Baltimore (11-2), which entered Thursday as the AFC’s top seed, can clinch its second consecutive AFC North title with a win over the Jets.

BALTIMORE — Five nights after famously rolling a 251, New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell bowled through the Baltimore Ravens for a season-high 87 yards.

Coming off an eventful week that included a bout with the flu and a headline-making bowling party, Bell showed flashes of his old form Thursday night — but it wasn’t enough to sustain the Jets, 42-21 losers at M&T Bank Stadium.

Bell lost close to 10 pounds before missing last week’s game, but he showed fresh legs with 21 carries against a sturdy defense on Thursday. It wasn’t his fault the Jets lost for the ninth time, clinching their fourth straight losing season — the franchise’s longest drought in the Super Bowl era.

Jackson breaks Vick’s QB rushing yards record

Bell brushes off bowling trip, says he rolled a 251
The Jets (5-9) were undermined by two turnovers by quarterback Sam Darnold and an inability to contain Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who threw five touchdowns and rushed for 86 yards in a performance that likely clinched the NFL MVP award.

With six starters inactive due to injuries, the Jets’ plan was to lean on Bell, who missed last Sunday’s game because of his illness. His absence became a bigger story when word got out that Bell had gone bowling on the eve of the game — only hours after being ruled out of the game.

Coach Adam Gase wasn’t happy that Bell was out instead of resting at home, but Bell laughed it off, noting he didn’t break any team rules. Adding levity to the story, Bell bragged that he bowled a career-high 251 “off the flu.” Video of Bell’s flu-game boast went viral.

Bell could’ve helped the Jets in one of the game’s pivotal moments — a fourth-and-1 from the Ravens’ 7 in the second quarter — but the $53 million running back didn’t get the call. Curiously, Gase called a pass play, and Darnold threw incomplete to a well-covered Robby Anderson in the end zone.

The Jets followed up that blown opportunity with another. On their next possession, with the ball at the Baltimore 25, Darnold was intercepted by safety Chuck Clark. The Jets missed a chance to slice a 21-7 deficit. They never really threatened again, as the Ravens pulled away in the third quarter.

It was an uneven night for Darnold (18-for-32, 218 yards), who came out strong with the first of two touchdown passes to wide receiver Jamison Crowder but eventually was rattled by the Baltimore blitz. In addition to his costly interception, he fumbled on a strip sack.

Darnold has 14 turnovers (12 interceptions, two lost fumbles), which ranks ninth among quarterbacks. He also missed three games due to mononucleosis.

In the offseason, the Jets expected the Darnold-Bell tandem to elevate the offense from mediocrity, but they have scored more than 24 points just three times.

This has been a frustrating season for Bell, who entered the game with a career-low 3.2 yards per carry. He doesn’t believe it’s his fault, claiming this week he has been the victim of circumstances — a patchwork offensive line and a lack of opportunities. He claimed he’ll “be back to what people are used to seeing” once he gets a full workload.

Bell began the night with 143 rushes, 14th in the NFL. His previous single-game high with the Jets was 70 yards.

Bruce Bosley Jersey Store

The late Bruce Bosley, a former consensus All-American and College Football Hall of Fame offensive and defensive lineman, will be the third West Virginia University football player to have his number retired by the school.

WVU announced Wednesday that Bosley’s number will be retired at the Mountaineers’ season opener versus Missouri on Sept. 3. His No. 77 will join Sam Huff’s No. 75 and Ira “Rat” Rodgers’ No. 21 among the retired numbers list.

Bosley earned consensus All-America honors in 1955 for the Mountaineers as a two-way tackle for coach Art “Pappy” Lewis and was named to 12 All-America teams. He also was a CoSIDA Academic All-American and played in the College All-Star Game, North-South Game and the Senior Bowl.

Bosley teamed with fellow linemen Huff and Gene “Beef” Lamone to help West Virginia to a 31-7 record, including a 3-1 mark against Penn State and two wins over Pitt. He was a key member of West Virginia’s 1954 Sugar Bowl team that finished with an 8-2 record and a Southern Conference championship.

A second-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 1956, he went on to become an immediate starter for the 49ers at defensive end, moved to offensive guard and then to center in 1962. Bosley was a 49ers team captain in 1967 and 1968 and finished his career with the Atlanta Falcons in 1969. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 1961 as an offensive guard and again in 1966, 1967 and 1968 as a center.

After retirement, Bosley was well known in the San Francisco area for his charitable endeavors. He served on the board of directors for the San Francisco Annex for Cultural Arts, was on the mayor’s committee for the San Francisco Council for the Performing Arts, and was a long-serving volunteer with the San Francisco Film Festival and the San Francisco Ballet.

Bosley also went on to be the president of the NFL Alumni Association, and become a member of the 49ers “Golden Era” team from 1946-69. He was selected to college football’s Silver Anniversary team in 1981, WVU’s all-time football team (1950-59), inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1982, the WVU Sports Hall of Fame in 1992, and the newly formed Mountaineer Legends Society in 2016. Bosley died in 1995 at age 61.

Currently, junior offensive lineman Marcell Lazard wears No. 77 for the Mountaineers, and will finish his career in that number before it goes into permanent retirement.

Willie Andrews Jersey Store

When I arrive in the beautiful, remote constituency of North East Fife for tea with the local Liberal Democrat candidate, she is apologetic. “We might have to rush,” Wendy Chamberlain explains, “because CNN is here.”

And sure enough, when I join her as she knocks doors on the quaint residential streets of St Andrews, we are followed by a TV crew. With a large team of eager canvassers, a 50:50 parliament tote bag swinging over her arm and a big smile on her face, Chamberlain has to walk up the same driveway several times, to help the cameramen get the right shot. “I’m glad I took amateur dramatics as a wee’un,” she murmurs to me. This isn’t the only TV crew to have been here in recent days.

Later, a vaguely familiar face joins our group, notebook in hand: it’s Hugo Rifkind from the Times, here with a cameraman. “I’m feeling terribly unoriginal,” he jokes as he discovers he is far from the only journalist in this corner of north east Scotland. It’s a terribly mediagenic choice, North East Fife, and not just because of the allure of St Andrews, famed for its golfing, beaches, and the university where Prince William met Kate Middleton. There’s a memorable tagline for this constituency: at the last election, the SNP beat the Liberal Democrats by only two votes, making this the most marginal constituency in the UK.

The narrative of the two-vote margin is more helpful to some parties here than others, however, and of contested relevance two years on. As I discover over the course of my visit to the constituency, much of the battle for North East Fife is a struggle between the Liberal Democrats, the SNP and, indeed, the Conservatives, over how to frame the contest, and how to relate to that 2017 result.

Out on the doorsteps with Chamberlain, the tightness of the last result is the first thing she mentions in her quick pitch. “This is the most marginal seat in the UK in terms of Westminster elections,” I watch her say on doorstep after doorstep. “There were just two votes in it last time. We’re pro-UK, pro-EU,” she adds with a warm smile, typically met with an encouraging nod, and then it’s on to the next door. The margin has captured the imagination of voters in the seat and fired up party activists, she explains. “People even talk about the recount on the doorstep,” she laughs. Indeed, there were three memorable recounts to confirm the result in 2017.

The Liberal Democrats see North East Fife as a straight contest between themselves and the SNP: two pro-Remain parties in a strongly pro-EU seat (it voted 64 per cent to Remain, higher than the Scottish average). The seat also voted 55 per cent against independence, in line with the Liberal Democrats’ pro-union message, and they are keenly aware that this is a historically Liberal seat: it was former party leader Ming Campbell’s seat from 1987 until 2015, and the historic seat of East Fife was the constituency of the Liberal prime minister Herbert Asquith, as I am reminded many times that day. “We should be able to win it back. We should never have lost it in the first place,” says one in Chamberlain’s huge team of canvassers.

And indeed, this is a fight they are throwing everything at. In North East Fife, Liberal Democrats aren’t using the printed sheets and clipboards used by canvassers up and down the country, but instead MiniVAN, the canvassing app used by the 2008 Obama Presidential campaign. If all canvassing is an effort simply to assess where the party’s vote is and where it isn’t, this app allows the Liberal Democrats here to collect data and plan canvassing with maximum efficiency.

“We have very, very good data,” confides one canvasser in the team, who whispers conspiratorially about the “software given by the Democrats”. (When I later check, it turns out to have been a purchase by the Liberal Democrats, rather than a gift, but only parties aligned with the Democrats’ progressive values are given that right. The Liberal Democrats, I am told, are the only party in the UK eligible to purchase the app.) “Guys, we have just hit 5,000 people!” Chamberlain announces to her team mid-way through the day. She tells me it is more than the local party managed over the whole campaign in 2017.

Chamberlain is a true MP-in-waiting: a charismatic former police officer, she is friendly, eloquent, and obviously optimistic about the campaign, but skilled at avoiding any predictions. It is her canvassers who chat more freely about how they really see things on the ground. They give a frank analysis of the problem in 2017: “Last time the Tory machine convinced people they could win here.” The Conservative candidate came in around 3,000 votes behind the Liberal Democrats and the SNP last time, with 24 per cent of the vote compared to the 32.9 per cent won by the two front-runners. The canvassers tell me that have spoken to “hundreds who confessed to voting Tory last time instead of Lib Dem,” a trend they are confident they can turn around.

Sam Rayburn Jersey Store

Times change, norms change, politicians with different standards come and go, and it’s all for the better, except maybe not, especially when you are talking about two Democratic speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives. They’re interesting comparisons, Sam Rayburn of years ago and Nancy Pelosi of today, and maybe what’s different about them gives us insight into our own times.

Known by friends as “Mr. Sam,” Rayburn was raised in meager circumstances on a Texas cotton farm and decided as a boy that he wanted to be a politician. He started out as a teacher, became a state legislator, got a law degree and turned up as a representative in Washington in 1913, hanging around until 1961.

Despite a couple of interruptions, he was speaker for 17 years, a record, and that was no accident. He stayed mostly behind the scenes, working politely and persuasively with others, mastered the content of just about every bill and found ways to get hugely important things done, such as supplying electricity to rural America.

He was around for two world wars and was a New Deal enthusiast, especially worried about the poor. Even though his father was a Confederate cavalryman, he evolved into a civil rights advocate. He wouldn’t take a nickel from anybody for anything. While a state legislator, he was also a member of a law firm that represented a railroad paying handsome fees. The legislature dealt with railroad issues, and even though there was no legal impediment, Rayburn said no fee for me, please.

When he died, he had $15,000 in the bank.

Pelosi, whose father was a congressman and mayor of Baltimore, climbed her way up in San Francisco politics, made it to the House and became its first woman speaker. She has always been outspoken on the issues, has been an unbeatable fund-raiser and has played an important role in in the passage of such legislation as Obamacare.

This year, she became speaker again, and every now and then has seemed lost in her leadership, still a liberal, ad hominem dogmatist but unclear on whether to keep House procedures reasonable or mystifying to some of us observers. No worthy guidance came from the youthful, irrational rebels in her changing party, but she is now tightly bound with them on the goal of impeaching President Donald Trump. She has worn a coat of righteousness in saying, for instance, that Trump belongs in prison, but her righteousness seems a bad fit.

By way of example, let’s go back to 2008 when the House was considering a popular bill that would stop Visa from charging vendors swipe fees and bringing home stacks of moolah. Pelosi was speaker of the House then and exempt from laws prohibiting insider trading, and her husband got a chance to buy Visa stocks in an initial public offering, making quite a bit of money over time. A Visa political action committee gave Nancy Pelosi $1,000 to help her re-election. She had a meeting with Visa executives. The bill did not make it to a vote and was in fact stalled for two years.

The stock purchase was examined by various news outlets, including “60 Minutes,” and Pelosi has said she was always on the side of consumers. Once, when asked about some of this at a press conference, she cut the questioner short, saying, “It’s not true and that’s that.” She has now suggested that Trump testify before the Democratic-directed impeachment hearings, and he might consider saying the same thing.

Pelosi’s husband has been highly successful in the real estate and venture capital business, and the two have had maybe eight adventures in initial public offerings, it is reported.

Their worth is estimated at $29 million.

Vince Newsome Jersey Store

After success playing football with the Vacaville Bulldogs in high school and the Washington Huskies in college, defensive back Vince Newsome was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in 1983.

Newsome noted several differences between the pros and his collegiate gridiron experiences besides the paychecks. They included the vastly accelerated velocity of the game, the size of the players and that it was more mental than physical at that level and required intensive studying.

Tony Wade: Back in the Day

“I went to a team that was loaded with talent,” Newsome said. “John Robinson had just became the head coach after being at USC and we had a lot of superstars like Eric Dickerson, Nolan Cromwell, Jack Youngblood, Jackie Slater and later Kevin Green and others. I played with a lot of players who would wind up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

Because of the depth in the Rams’ roster, Newsome was not thrown immediately into the fire, but given time to learn how to become a pro.

“I competed against myself. I had this adage, ‘To stay a champion, you have to think like a challenger.’ So I never took for granted that I was in the NFL or that I was going to stay there,” Newsome said. “I had to improve each year and keep that ‘I’m a challenger’ perspective in my mental and physical conditioning.”

In addition to playing with some of the biggest names in the history of the NFL, Newsome played against many as well. They include Walter Payton, Tony Dorsett, Earl Campbell, Ken Stabler, Dan Marino, Warren Moon, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, among others.

The Rams went 11-5 in 1985 and made it to the Conference championship game. Unfortunately, they ran into the defensive juggernaut that was the Chicago Bears. Like the Bears, who made a popular rap video starring the team called “The Super Bowl Shuffle,” the Rams released “Let’s Ram It” (bit.ly/LETSRAMIT) which . . . has not aged well.

“That video needs to be burned. I’m just glad I’m not in it,” Newsome said.

Plan B Free Agency began in the NFL in 1990 and Newsome visited a few other teams and decided to join the Cleveland Browns.

“In Los Angeles you’d better be winning or fans have other things to do. When I went to Cleveland, you didn’t have to be one of the superstars, you just had to be one of the players and everybody wanted to touch you. They embraced the entire team,” Newsome said.

At that time, Bill Belichick was head coach and Nick Saban was the defensive coordinator. Newsome felt like he had to prove himself all over again as he played with several big names like Clay Matthews, Michael Dean Perry, Bernie Kosar and Kevin Mack, among others.

In 1992, after a 10-year career in the NFL, Vince Newsome hung up his cleats for good and retired.

Almost as soon as he left the field, he joined the front office. The Browns allowed Newsome to coach in mini-camps to get a taste of what it was like. But he was nudged toward the personnel side.

“I was approached by one of Cleveland’s top personnel guys and he suggested I follow the path of Ozzie Newsome (no relation) who was then the Director of Pro Personnel and who he predicted would be a general manager one day,” Newsome said. “Now, I knew Ozzie because I played against him and I thought ‘he’s going to be a GM?’ But I gave it some thought and went to the personnel side.”

After the 1995 season, the Browns franchise ceased to be – until it was resurrected as an expansion team four years later when owner Art Modell moved the team to Baltimore and they became the Ravens. Ozzie Newsome did become the GM and Vince Newsome became the Assistant Director of Pro Personnel, then the Director of Pro Personnel and is now the Senior Personnel Executive.

Newsome is glad he had coaches like the late Tom Zunino at Vacaville High School who encouraged him to stick with it when he wanted to quit. His football resume continues to grow to this day.

“To me the pinnacle was having the relationships and camaraderie with teammates when I was playing, but helping to build a team that wins a Super Bowl is immensely gratifying and we’ve done it twice,” Newsome said. “Your roster changes every year so it’s difficult to get the players to come together to where you’re hitting your sweet spot at the right time. But I would still rather play.”

There’s a reason most season fantasy football leagues don’t play into Week 17. There will a handful of teams resting key players for the final, most notably the Ravens.

The AFC’s top seed won’t be making fantasy’s 2019 top league-winning QB, Lamar Jackson, available to run or pass in reality. Baltimore also won’t be taking any chances on running back Mark Ingram with his calf strain before the playoffs. Minnesota and Buffalo are two other locked-in playoff teams.

The Decider is still breaking down the schedule to provide one more week of start/sit lineup decisions and DFS picks for the 2019 NFL season. Sporting News NFL writer Vinnie Iyer breaks down the matchups and helps you pick the players you should deploy or avoid in Week 17.

Fantasy football rankings for Week 13 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

David Fluellen Jersey Store

NASHVILLE — With the holiday season in full swing, Titans RB Khari Blasingame, TE Anthony Firkser, RB David Fluellen, TE Parker Hesse, TE Mycole Pruitt, TE Jonnu Smith, QB Ryan Tannehill and QB Logan Woodside put on red Santa hats, sang Christmas carols and delivered gifts to spread Christmas cheer by visiting new parents and orthopaedic patients at Saint Thomas Midtown hospital. Saint Thomas Health is part of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and nonprofit health system.

“We were able to visit families and welcome little girls and boys to the world,” said Tannehill. “Beautiful kids and happy parents – it’s special that we were able to share that moment with them to welcome that child to the world. Several of them were going home today and that’s exciting! To be able to see them before they go home and bring a smile to their faces was a lot of fun.”

More moms trust Saint Thomas Women’s Care to deliver their babies more than any other hospital in the state of Tennessee. More than 6,000 babies are born annually at the hospital which is the most among all hospitals in middle Tennessee. The OB floor made extensive and exciting renovations that began in 2016 to enhance the experience of the many families they care for each year. Some of the updates included a new registration area, renovated triage rooms, labor and delivery rooms and a new Titans Fan Zone Waiting Room. Additionally, the new Birthing Center offers expectant families a truly memorable childbirth experience: holistic, highly specialized maternity care in a home-like environment.

Saint Thomas also underwent a $25 million project renovating 94,000 square feet of space on the 8th floor of the Saint Thomas Joint Replacement Institute. This resulted in eight dedicated operating rooms that are larger and more appropriate for advanced total joint replacement procedures, leading to the best outcomes for patients. The final result brings Middle Tennessee patients a personalized experience.

“It means so much to everybody, especially around the holidays,” said Nicole Schlechter, Chief Medical Officer at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital. A hospital setting is not always the happiest moment and having them here brightens everyone’s day. Of course, the baby part of it is great too! They come and visit our newborn babies and they makes everyone so happy.”

“Just sang them some Christmas songs,” said Smith. “I’m not going to sing them on camera because I’ll embarrassed myself! The patients sang along with us and it was awesome. It was a great mood and great spirits. It doesn’t even feel like a hospital — it just feels like we are visiting some great people.”

“Having the relationship where we can come here on a Tuesday and bring a smile to their faces, cheer some people up and share some great moments with these kids and parents is a special thing,” added Tannehill”

There is a selflessness and sensibility not found anywhere else except by those who care for people when they are at their most vulnerable. Since we are in the season of giving thanks, it’s a good time to deliver a dose of gratitude to the physicians, nurses and staff for the skill, care, and compassion they provide.

There’s no doubt a hospital is one of the last places most families hope to find themselves over the Christmas holiday. The staff at Saint Thomas Hospitals continue to help families of Christmases past and present continue a tradition aimed at making the stay a little more joyous.

Leonard Fairley Jersey Store

After a successful first year, Asbury is hosting its second annual Embrace Conference on Nov. 19 and 20.

This year the event will feature Bishop Leonard Fairley of the Kentucky Annual Conference as its keynote speaker. Fairley will lead the opening session Nov. 19 from 4-5 p.m. in the Cafeteria Gray Room.

The conference will begin with registration at 1 p.m. on Nov. 19 and a meet and greet in the Student Center, and continues with a screening of “If They Are Free, I Am Free” by Propaganda and Q Ideas in the Miller screening room.

Fayette County Clerk Shea Brown and Andrew Russell will be interviewed in the Student Center at 6:30 p.m., and the night closes with an evening social and student performances from 8-9 p.m.

After breakfast and the Embrace Conference chapel on Nov. 20, students and faculty will lead four breakout sessions from 11 a.m. to noon, and the conference will end with a lunch talkback session.

Seniors Caleb Norris and Madeline Smart will lead one of the breakout sessions titled “White But Not Quite.”

“Our theme this year is ‘Mutuality: Christians and Racial Reconciliation,’” said Norris. “We want to get the message across to every attendee that they are personally responsible to have this conversation.”

Registration is $50 for community members, but is free for Asbury students. Students can also receive excused absences from class for attending the conference at the discretion of individual professors.
