“In order to do better, we must be willing to hold our darkness to the light, we must be willing to shatter our own veneer of goodness.”
So You Want To Talk About Race
As Christians, we are called to love all of God’s creation and resist the powers of evil and injustice in our midst. In the wake of the most recent public killings of black and brown Americans in our country, you may be wondering—what can I possibly do? Let’s start by looking inward, and discovering how we have been shaped by the systems of oppression in our world.
Starting Thursday, June 25, join Pastor Kate for a new Adult Ed program on the book Waking Up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race, by Debby Irving. For four weeks, from June 25 through July 16, we will dive into the challenging and important topic of racism and whiteness together.
Disclaimer: this IS one of those book groups where you really do need to read the book! Let Pastor Kate know if you’re having trouble obtaining a copy of the book.
Reach out to Pastor Kate with questions or to sign up for the group by June 22.
