Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith developed by The Episcopal Church. You are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism with a small group, while weaving threads of family history, economic class, and political and regional identity.
This is a 10-part series that meets every other week. It includes viewing powerful documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. Two core books, “Jesus and the Disinherited” by Howard Thurman and “Waking Up White” by Debbie Irving, are used in the course.
This Sacred Ground course is being offered on Sundays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. It will meet June 13 and 27, July 11 and 25, August 8 and 22, September 5 and 19, and October 3 and 17. If you know you cannot make two or more of the sessions, we ask that you wait to register at a later date.
Our meetings will begin online but may transition to in-person depending on parish gathering guidelines in the coming weeks. Please register here by June 6. For more information contact Leah Dail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
