OPENING PLENARY: WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 7–8:30 P.M.
SERIES: FOUR WEDNESDAYS, JULY 15 & 29, and AUGUST 12 & 26, 7 P.M
At this critical moment in our nation’s and community’s history, we are confronted again with fresh knowledge of longstanding racial injustice – in policing, the justice system, health care, housing, education, the Church, and many other sectors of our common life. Our faith community is grappling with important questions – what do I need to learn? How should I and our church respond?
We will undertake a four-week study and discussion series to confront racism—its theology, history, and presence in our lives today—and ways to move forward toward justice. The series is open to all, recognizing the responsibility for change falls on white people. A plenary session with Dean Thomason to learn more about the series was offered on July 1, 7-8:30 p.m. See video of this event below.
The in-depth series follows on four Wednesday nights (July 15 and 29, August 12 and 26) and will require advance registration and a commitment to attend all sessions and read/watch articles and videos in advance. More details to come soon, but you can get started by reading Ijeoma Oluo’s book, So You Want to Talk About Race.
