WEEKLY CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE

The Revs. Karen Cuffie and Jani Wild are leading weekly pastoral conversations on racism every Thursday at 4:30 pm. There will be a brief introduction to the focus of the session followed by discussion and prayers.

Please join us; there is no better way to learn, process, and share together than in a faith community. There is no preparation required and no homework. Each meeting has a short video and then a discussion in breakout groups.

Please come to the conversation whenever it fits your schedule. There is also a short 15 – minute book discussion after the one – hour race discussion.

We are currently discussing How To Be An Anti – Racist by Ibram Kendi one chapter each week.
