Ray Villegas – Regional Director, Young Life, New York City


Ray Villegas and Holly Culhane are longtime friends who have worked together, ministered together, and even cried together over the years. Their talk about how white America can shepherd more effectively in the area of racial injustice is powerful. Ray recommends entering into the difficult spaces where people are hurting with a posture of wanting to listen, to feel, and to empathize.



In the interview, Ray talks about a Zoom call church prayer meeting where they used the practice of lamenting. He graciously agreed to provide the guide his church used. The three page guide is pasted below.
